Saratoga changed its policy for clubhouse admission and dining on the patio this year, for the Travers (at least), turning what used to be a very pleasant experience into a lengthy wait, with less than helpful, and welcoming, service from the dining staff.

If you haven't been to the Travers, its a must to visit! First, the racetrack is like a fairgrounds, family oriented, the pickic area is awesome, big screens and small screens everywhere. The vendors and food is very good or you can bring in coolers. Lighting is excellent. People are super helpful at the track. The views are beautiful sitting... More

I grew up near Saratoga and still go to the races every year when I am home visiting my parents. It's a great afternoon on a beautiful summer day even if you don't care for horse racing that much. Lots of things going on around the grounds like wine tasting NY craft beer day etc. and you can get up... More

A trip back to yester-year. Dressing formally (or not); reservation at Club Dining Room. Everyone helpful; place is well kept - clean and beautiful. And the horses....well....that's who we are there to see. Exciting!

My husband and I went to Saratoga in August a few years ago. It was when Cigar did a final appearance to the crowd on the track. It is a beautiful place; people are very friendly and we had a great time. Would love to go back.

Wish my betting choices would have been as close to successful as was the easy in and out for the Travers. Extremely efficient direction from law enforcement as well as track parking attendants. Paid $20 for trackside parking at noon. Some of the parking options further away were running $50. The track itself is small. But very clean with many... More

Definitely the place to be during the month of August.. You don't even have to be a horse racing fan to enjoy this place... Plenty of food libations and people watching available ... Plus the raw bar is fantastic

Was there for my first time with my husband and 13 year old twins. I was a bit apprehensive because it was the Friday before the Traverse Race and thought it would be too packed but I felt comfortable and not overwhelmed by crowds. What an amazing experience. We had such a great day. My kids and I were so... More

Best place to feel the classic American sport. The Spa will take you back to simpler times and remind us how to have fun without electronics.
