Winners of the Travers, affectionately called the "Mid-Summer Derby" and the oldest continuously-run grade one stakes race in the United States, have their name inscribed on the original and receive a gold-plated replica of the Cup. The Cup is named after the 1920 winner of the Stakes race, Man o' War. Man o' War went on to defeat the famed Sir Barton, the first winner of the American Triple Crown, at a special match race at Kenilworth Park in Windsor. Saratoga Race Course has several longstanding traditions that include the yearly presentation of the Man O War Cup, which is also known as the Travers Trophy. And is presented after the annual renewal of the signature race of the summer meet at America's oldest racecourse. Each year the original gold trophy is presented by a member of the Riddle family and either the Governor or Lt. Governor of the State of New York. A replica is made each year and that gold-plated smaller version of the permanent trophy is given for permanent possession to the owners of the winning horse.
