World class horse racing, great venue. $3.00 to enter track, bring your own food and drink or buy inside, your choice. Great entertainment, don't forget to come during early morning (7 am) viewing to see the horses training. Bring your own coffee, sit in a box seat and enjoy the view. Free horse track tours too.

Thoroughbred racing in Saratoga is six weeks of the best horse racing in the world. Whether your choice is picnicking in the backyard or hobnobbing with American royalty, wearing a tee shirt and shorts or dressing to the nines...there are special memories for all to cherish. The paths of people from all walks of life and different parts of the... More

Any time you have a chance to visit Saratoga Racecourse and Saratoga Springs, take it. The rich history of the area is well worth the trip.

Every August my company hosts a "Day at the Races" for the employees. It is always a great time. For many years we sat in the Grandstand and ate lunch in the Carousel which was lovely but for the last few years we've been getting a picnic table outside on the grounds and having lunch catered by a local delicatessen....

150 Years of racing and not much has changed. Perfect for the entire family. You don't have to be a gambler to have a good time. Just watch the Top Horses race in the best venue in the sport. Only $5 to get in and you can bring everything with you. Just no glass bottles.

This is by far the most beautiful and fun place to be in August in Saratoga. The weather is usually beautiful and the atmosphere is great! Lots of pretty people, attractions and horses for everyone. Plus going out for dinner or drinks afterwards in Saratoga Springs tops off a perfect day!

loved going here with my Mom, and lost her last April. Went today without her-and although it was not the same- it is still a place that will always make me remember the best of times.
