Racing fans, there is nowhere in the States like this race course. It has everything from great racing to excellent food. There is entertainment, shopping (artist originals to tee-shirt shops), as well as picnic areas. if you are fortunate enough to have access to the backstretch, you enter another world available to racings elites. The folks here are friendly, and... More

If you ever visit Saratoga try to come at least one or two days during the six and one half week thoroughbred race meet. It is Saratoga and all it offers at its finest.

Going to the races at Saratoga is a must experience if you've never been there! This track is one of the oldest in North America and quite prestigious for the east coast crowd, especially if you have an in. You can dress up or dress down whichever you please, depending on where you want to hang out for the day!

Whether you are in the box seats in fancy attire watching your horses at the finish line or among the hoi polloi in the back yard watching the race on TV monitors nad drinking the beer and eating the food you brought in and watching the kids play in the playgrounds, the Saratoga Race Course is always a great experience.

I've always lived within a few miles of the track and while I'm not a gambler I have to say that this venue is one that shouldn't be missed if you're traveling nearby in the mid-late summer. I'd encourage you to visit for breakfast, a most beautiful and relatively quiet time when the horses are working out on the main... More

The people watching is the prime event for this classic summer hotspot. It's hard to imagine a better day than lounging around the "backyard" at the racetrack, losing a few bucks and making memories with friends. The track offers a variety of experiences depending on your interests and how much money you want to spend, which is why it is... More

Great place for watching both horses and people. It's something everyone should experience. It's fun to go in the clubhouse and experience the racing up close. See the horses come on to the track, cross the finish line and go in the winner's circle. You can actually feel the horses' hooves pounding down the track.

Saratoga Race Course is a beautiful place to visit. The fee for adults is cheap $5 for adults and for younger children its free. Also, if you go early morning , its free for everyone and you can enjoy seeing the horses and jockey's workout on the track. It's always a great time . I'll be returning. Can't wait.
