    I grew up in Saratoga and I absolutely love coming back to visit during racing season! I have not missed a Travers yet (except the year I decided to get married, on Travers Day… oops!). Unfortunately, I was not aware of this event that happened on the eve of Travers and missed out on the horse silly bandz!!! How or where can I purchase these??? I would love to give one to all of my immediate family members that no longer live in the area!!! Please advise! thanks
