SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - With the thoroughbred racing season about to begin in Saratoga Springs, a local museum has opened an exhibit of a popular series of posters started by a New York artist in the 1980s.

The exhibit titled “Greg Montgomery: 30 Years of the Travers” features all 30 of the 66-year-old Albany artist’s Travers Stakes posters. They’re on display at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame through the end of the year.

The museum is located across the street from Saratoga Race Course, which opens for the season on Friday.

Montgomery created his first poster in 1986 in time for the Travers, Saratoga’s biggest race. Since then, his colorful annual posters have become collectors’ items. Many can be found hanging on the walls of bars, restaurants and shops throughout Saratoga and elsewhere.
