As far as the Distaff, Sacahuista, Spain, Unbridled Elaine, and Ajina all took the race without dominating the 3yo filly division, so it's not necessarily always a tough race. That said, this year's race will likely feature a couple of stout racemares in Abel Tasman and Elate, with some brilliance thrown in from Unique Bella (if she holds together and/or goes that route).

So the Travers may actually end up being an easier stunt to pull off with a fairly depleted 3yo male division come Travers day with basically Good Magic and a bevy of second stringers in tow...
I think older females have gotten tougher the last decade or, maybe its just me, but I think that is the toughest class year in year out.

I understand historic, I just dont know where that puts here in terms of being remembered, if Justify was in the race, well yea, then it would be talked about. If not its like Beholder winning the Pacific Classic. Nice work, not sure it mean much, they certainly dont talk about the last filly winning the travers, since as you said it is historic.
