We go 2 to 3 times a year. Always a fun day. Have been in the restaurants, boxes, and general admission/picnic tables...no matter all fun! Admission is cheap, eats are not!! Come prepared!

The Saratoga track is on par or better than any track in the world. It's the perfect blend of old tradition and new amenities! Plus it's like $2 for admission, and you can bring your own beer if you want! Enjoy the ponies the right way!

Although a relatively short season (40 days of racing) The History, tradition, excitement, and beauty makes for a perfect experience for anyone. The city of Saratoga Springs is certainly "The Summer Place to be" and Saratoga Race Course is a big part of a total destination experience. You can enjoy... More

The track offers something for everyone from fine horses to excellent people watching. Having attended a number of times I can tell you that it is... More
