Loved the ambiance of Saratoga and the track. Very clean and lots of staff. Food choices plentiful. Expensive beer/drinks, as expected. Placing bets was easy and explained well by friendly folks. Really enjoyed our day! My only complaint is I wish there was an air-conditioned area.

It was fun seeing the horse races. We sat in the clubhouse, but no air conditioning. The tables were perfect for seeing the races, but the food isn't that good. But we really came for the races. The facilities are old but charming. Definitely would go again.

We visit the track once or twice a year from Long Island, we have a long time family friend that has worked here for over 25 years. Nice picnic areas if you like, grandstand is reasonable, food is mediocre but we always bring our own. Track is historic and beautiful, def stop by if you are in Saratoga during track... More

The best race track in America is even better this year. You can get up close and personal with the best horses, jockeys and trainers in the country. Don't miss the morning workouts from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Wednesday through Monday.

We have been going to the races at Saratoga for over 30 years. The track is great and we really like the picnic tables in the backyard. If you want to get a table, during the week you must get there by 11 am. On weekends and opening day you need to go to the track at 7 am and... More

Nothing but fun!! We will return again next year. Only downside is $5+ to use the ATMS. I guess the answer is to win in which case you won't need to withdraw money!! Great time none the less.

Go first thing in the morning and watch the horses work out. It's mostly empty of tourists and you can just appreciate the speed and heart of these majestic animals.

My friend had wanted to return to Saratoga to see the races for a few years now, and we finally made it happen just after opening day for this race season. It was a great way to spend a Satuday - starting around 11:30am until the final race of the day (about 6:30pm). Though we were somewhat unprepared (not knowing... More

An exciting but charming place to go- for a day or a week The track still looks like it was carved out of the woods. I've been there opening weekend for about 15 years and the track as well as the surrounding area doesn't get old. There are many bars/restaurants within 2-5 miles from the track that bear visiting as... More
