2014 Travers Poster is Here!
The 2014 poster artwork, “Picking a Winner,”
shows a crowd of Saratoga Clubhouse patrons getting a final close look at the thoroughbreds and jockeys before the race. In this scene, track patrons are watching the 2013 Travers Stakes winner Will Take Charge and jockey Luis Saez make their way beneath the awnings and trees to the track.
For more than ten years, my partner, Paula, has been suggesting that I showcase the beautiful and historic white ornamental ironwork columns and hand-carved horse head rafters that grace this corner of the Clubhouse. These classic decorations are quintessentially Saratoga. So, finally, here they are. The photos she took to help me with the column’s details are actually paper prints with negatives — talk about “historic”!
This is the 29th poster in the longest-running series of its kind. The 2014 Travers poster (and the Saratoga version) are available on this website and at selected stores and galleries in Saratoga Springs after June 16th, 2014. Please watch this space for schedules of poster and book signings in and around Saratoga.
See you at the track!
