Trainer Jimmy Jerkens had the best horse in the $1.25 million Travers Stakes (gr. I)—but it wasn't the one everyone was betting on. V. E. Day upset stablemate and Jim Dandy (gr. II) winner Wicked Strong by a nose in the 1 1/4-mile 'Midsummer Derby' Aug. 23 at Saratoga Race Course, charging late to surge ahead in the nick of time for his biggest career victory at odds of 19-1. "I wasn't absolutely sure it was V. E. Day because he had so much mud on him, until they got a little closer and I saw the silks and then I knew it was him," Jerkens remarked. "I said, 'Man, what a feeling. I know I'm going to win the Travers; I just don't know with who.'" http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/86939/travers-upset-v-e-day-over-wicked-strong#ixzz3BQjuN6ji
