In addition winning the lion’s share of the $1.25 million purse, the owner of the winning horse also takes home a silver replica of the solid gold Man O’ War Cup that is presented to the Travers Stakes winner each year. The Man O’ War Cup first was designed by New York City’s Tiffany & Company for the 1873 race and has been presented to the winner each year that the race has been one since. While the winner does not keep the solid gold trophy, he or she does keep a Tiffany-designed silver trophy that is a replica of the Man O’ War Cup and equally prestigious among horse racing enthusiasts.
