Whether you love horse racing or just people watching, go to the track! You can find whatever you like here, from hotdogs to upscale menus, bleachers to tablecloths, people in tanks and shorts to people in suits and dressy hats. It's all here!

What a great way to spend a day or more. Beautiful race track, many things to enjoy in the track area. Parking is kinda crazy, we parked in the free lot and biked over to the track. Even if you get there early parking is mobbed. Once inside, getting up close to the track is easy before the race. The... More

Great food trucks, classical atmosphere in the racetrack. Make sure to visit downtown after the races.

The track was clean and well kept. Seating had good views and betting was easy and close to settings. I don't like the horses going around twice on the smaller track. If you are a fan of thoroughbred horse racing, this isn't for you.

We went for a work event and saw a couple races and a lot of fun. I also played some slot machines for a couple minutes before we had to leave and won some money. Overall a fun time.

Go! Relax, sip some drinks and Bet on a name that sounds like fun. Buy a Club entrance, put your name down on the waiting list for the upstairs dining and be amazed with the best seats and service the place has to offer. I cannot say enough about how much fun this experience is and a must do. Wait... More

Located where else, but in Saratoga Springs, about one hour north of Albany, Saratoga Race Track is open from late July to the Labor Day holiday weekend. Even if you are not a gambler or like to bet on horse racing the excitement and exhilarating feeling you get when you enter the park will last forever. Upon entering, you will... More

I am not a big fan of horse racing although I do LOVE horses. We took the backstretch tour to view the horses and barns up close and personal. It was awesome!!!! We had breakfast at the track first, then took a trolley car to the barns. The guide was really good and told us lots of inside information about... More

Went to Saratoga Race Course for both the slots and races. Found casino to be very clean and had lots of slots to choose from. All staff were very friendly and venue very clean. Races easy to see and you could feel the excitement in the air. Would def go back again.

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
