(NORTH COUNTRY BOOKS, Utica, New York) Keeping a streak alive was never a thought to author Vic Zast and artist Greg Montgomery when each began to record memories and images of the Travers Stakes.
Zast, a Buffalo, N.Y. native, had spent at least a day at Saratoga Racecourse during the month of August for the last 45 years. Montgomery, who moved to Saratoga Springs, N.Y. from Washington, D.C. in 1980, created his first of 25 Travers posters in 1986.
