Rich Strike came to Saratoga

Kentucky Derby winner will seek vindication

The colt Rich Strike, brand new winner of the Kentucky Derby with the Venezuelan Sonny León and sixth in the Belmont Stakes in New York, arrived at the Saratoga racecourse to look for the surprise in the two kilometers of the Travers Stakes.

The race, to be held on Saturday, August 27, is one of the most emblematic competitions on the New York oval.

Rich Strike is a son of Keen Ice, winner of that race in the 2015 season with Javier Castellan from Zuliano, dam by Gold Strike, in Smart Strike, with a record of two victories in nine presentations, which he will try to claim.

Sonny León, the second Venezuelan jockey to win the Kentucky Derby, performs well at the Gulfstream Park circuit and will be in charge of driving the chestnut that would face the chestnut in the summer race that the triple-crowned American Pharoah could not win.
