This thorobred track is family friendly and much like a day at the county fair. Plenty of grass,trees and a wonderful choice of food and seating. Do worry that the NYRA is getting a bit greedy now charging for some picnic tables.

We have been going for a number of years now and we love it. The excitement of watching the horses race, people winning or losing bets, enjoying time with friends and family is a tradition we love every summer. Since the race track is large, be ready to walk a lot. Also, be prepared for heat when sunny and variable... More

you do not have to be a gambler to enjoy this raceway. It's a great place to have a picnic and view some beautiful animals. No need to have this adventure cost you a fortune. Bring your lawn chair and stake a claim unde a tree. Plenty of places. Admission is reasonable, even into the clubhouse area. Rserved box seating... More

We attend the Traverse Week festivities in Saratoga and had made reservations at the Club House for the races. What a gem! It's how it should be. The food, what can I say, par excellence. I had the crab cakes and my mate had the filet mignon. Hats off to the Chef! I can still taste the crab cakes. The... More

This is a combined harness racing track and casino, each with their own restaurant. Visitors must be at least 18 years old to enter the casino floor. The Fortunes Restaurant at the track is only open when there is horse racing. The Garden Buffet at the casino is open for lunch and dinner every day. The casino also has Lucky... More

Races run only a few weeks in the summer, but this is a wonderful place to visit, even if you are not a fan. The energy is infectious and the ambiance is invigorating.

Eventhough I couldn't pick a winner today, still had fun.. I used to live near here and spent alot of time at the track. The track is very clean, safe and accomodating to it's patrons. The casino was very busy during the day (nice Sunday afternoon) but then did slowdown a little as the night wore on. Good selection of... More

Unfortunately this does not open till July 24th and is only open a few months till mid September. The grounds are beautiful and reminiscent of old days at the tracks of yesteryear. This is the oldest track in the US! The area surrounding the racetrack is pretty amazing also. The homes are gorgeous and some have become B&B's. Hope to... More

Please update your facilities and offer something for families. Sorry for the snarky comment, but you're in need of a serious renovation.
