I just could not imagine anyone that would ever have a unfavorable opinion about Saratoga Race Track - It is just a perfect place to spend a day. Say hello to those next to you! Take photos all day long! You need no experience in horse-racing to know that this is world class!

Everything about Saratoga Springs is awesome--but the crown jewel is Saratoga Race Track. We spend every summer in Saratoga and have never been disappointed.

You have to see racing here, though it could be better run for the patrons. For the horses, it's the best. Food and drink is expensive for what you get. Bring your own(no glass) in a cooler; sit in the backyard and enjoy the experience. Watch the horses being saddled and pick one. Bet with your head or your heart,... More

Absolutely my favorite place in Saratoga! It's a combination of everything: colorful people, beautiful animals, racing excitement, history, music, fashion, fun, family get-togethers, tradition. Simply put, there is no other place like it. Unique and not to be missed.

The Saratoga Race Course is beautiful. There are a number of great food options around the track and local beers served at several stands. Get your tickets early. I recommend seating in the bandstand to have a designated spot to sit and to be in close proximity to the betting tellers. I'm not sure that there is a better way... More

We are new residents of Malta and venturedup to the Race Track this summer. What a fun and educational experience! Sooo interesting and has such a great historical feel to it. Also the place to be for "people watching" - such a cool mix of individuals! Can't wait for Track season next year. The breakfast option is very enjoyable and... More

The Track as us locals call it is the oldest race track in America. Celebrating 151 year this season. It is a beautiful setting!! To take it all in bring your folding chairs, pack some food, and bring your own booze, yes you can BYOB. Spend the day, take in the sights and sounds, it's wonderful!!!

The At the Rail Pavilion Brunch was delicious and its view of the racecourse was excellent. The actual Pavillion was extremely crowded so come prepared to have the back of your chair bumped into, rudely and repeatedly.
