Warm and sunny, with a chance of Racing! The 2015 poster artwork, “Crossing Union,” shows thoroughbreds with their grooms and riders making the early-morning trip between historic Horse Haven on the Oklahoma side, across Union Avenue to the main Saratoga Racetrack. The well-worn path across Union Avenue, protected by the crossing guards, has seen some of the greatest horses in history.
Some of the most beautiful animals on earth are right there, at arm's length, moving through deep shadows into the morning light. It's quintessentially Saratoga and it's a gift to be there.
This is the 30th poster in The Colors of Racing series. The 2015 Travers poster (and the Saratoga version) were unveiled for the first time at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, NY on June 13th, 2015. The exhibition "Greg Montgomery: 30 Years of the Travers" will be on display in the von Stade Gallery through December 31, 2015. Please come visit us!
