Amello has produced the “Trackfacts” selection sheet at Saratoga Race Course since 1989. He also served as an on-air host at Capital OTB for more than 20 years. Amello developed a TV version of “Trackfacts” for Capital OTB and also co-hosted a second program for the network, “Trackfacts Live,” that was an audience-driven program.

Kling, who co-hosted “Trackfacts Live” with Amello, is a public handicapper and columnist. He has been the lead handicapper at The Record since 1998 and has written for Post Time USA, Horseplayer magazine and Wizard Productions.

The program will feature Travers Stakes trivia for prizes from Embrace the Race and the Museum’s gift shop.
