Everyone needs to experience this at least once (or annually). Carnival atmosphere. It's not expensive to get in the gates, they allow for coolers and lawn chairs (no glass bottles). While many events that allow for that have become nothing more than an excuse for drunken bad behavior, that is something one does not see here. People are respectful and... More

Beautifully preserved race track. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon. You can do an early morning visit and watch the horses work-out or get a tour of the back-side where the horses are stabled and the staff live.

Old time charm and such a wonderful place. The people here are actually nice. 4 of us came for the weekend and everything about this racetrack is amazing. The food selections the artwork and the whole vibe of Saratoga makes this place worth visiting even if you don't like horse racing.

Was so much fun! Best people watching with all the people all dressed up and hats everywhere. The grounds are amazing. The details on all the buildings and new additions to the track this year. Was crowded but clean. Everyone having a wonderful time.

Saratoga is one of my most favorite tracks... very friendly and well maintained. Management goes above and beyond serving their visitors... the bus shuttle was great considering the track was packed with people for opening day. Beverages and food were everywhere... we loved the craft beer tasting they hosted and even went home with some earnings for the day !

Watched the horses breeze on the Oklahoma training track early one morning from the Whitney Viewing Stand overlooking the rail. The Oklahoma track is across the road from the main race track where we also watched exercise riders on their thoroughbreds. Can't rate the main Saratoga track for anything else because racing season hadn't started, but we saw the old... More

Was in Saratoga on business, and took a side trip to the track. What fun! Lots to see and do, and the casino attached is a fun diversion. Just make sure you set a limit and don't go crazy on those slots!
