Saratoga Springs is a magical place and Saratoga Racetrack is at it's heart. This was my 2nd visit to the racetrack. Last year, my boyfriend and I vowed to return every year for the meet. There is an energy to this place that is unlike anything else I have experienced. The track brings the kid out in you as well... More

Saratoga race track is immersed in history and going there sort of takes you back in time. Everything at the track is "rustic" or old, but that is sort of what gives it appeal. That being said much of the place needs refurbishing, such at the restaurants and seating area. That being said, it's a great day out. However, be... More

I don't know what I could say about the track that others haven't already said a dozen times. Def the lux boxes are worth every penny to be in the air conditioning, have a clean restroom and a front row seat to the races. Not everyone enjoys this and I've also done the less expensive route of a picnic table... More

The people were from all walks of life and the parade of... More

Great atmosphere when you attend this event. I have travelled to Saratoga on several occasions and always love the races. I do not go to races in Ireland but sure love going in Saratoga.

I've been to tracks all over the country and the only one that compares to toga is keeneland. This is a wonderful place. Free parking just past track. Was here for the Travers which is the biggest event of the meet and didn't feel crowded. Could access food, beverage and betting with little delay. Not like other ny tracks that... More

Every good think you've ever heard about this racetrack is probably true. And there's a lot to hear or google if you like. A short walk to downtown Saratoga that offers plenty of lodging and dining. The track itself is beautiful, both inside and out. My favorite track and I'll certainly be back next year.

Saratoga Race Track There is nothing better then waking up early on a beautiful summer morning to go claim a spot in the shade of the picnic area at Saratoga Race Track. The more planning put into a day at the track, the better experience you will have. Plan on arriving around 7:00 am to get a nice spot near... More

First trip to the track and was pleasantly surprised. Clean, lots of food options. Pre-order tickets and recommend grand stands on a hot, sunny day!
