SARATOGA SPRINGS -- Hours after Code of Honor won the historic Travers Stakes, the city is booming. 

Energy shifted Saturday afternoon when more than ten thousand fans gathered at the track. 


"It's just the tradition, we love horse racing" said Mark Paine. "It's a beautiful atmosphere getting together with family and friends."

For many, the running of the 150th Travers Stakes isn't just about winning or losing. It also involves the horses names and the colors the jockeys wear.
