The Track as us locals call it is the oldest race track in America. Celebrating 151 year this season. It is a beautiful setting!! To take it all in bring your folding chairs, pack some food, and bring your own booze, yes you can BYOB. Spend the day, take in the sights and sounds, it's wonderful!!!

The At the Rail Pavilion Brunch was delicious and its view of the racecourse was excellent. The actual Pavillion was extremely crowded so come prepared to have the back of your chair bumped into, rudely and repeatedly.

Saratoga Rack Track is the best - most beautiful and historic race track. Everyone should visit here at least once in their lives! We are so lucky to be only 30 minutes away and can visit often during the summer season...

This place is a must see if you're into horse racing. Staff will allow you some photo opportunities if you're a visitor in the off season.
