High stakes, big races, champions and upsets - all part of the experience of "the Track", and your guide to all these things is here at SaratogaRaceTrack.com!
The racecourse in Saratoga sees big names both in the grandstands and coming out of the starting gate. Don't be intimidated - you can be a part of all the excitement in a place where beginner's luck is just as important as seasoned advice. The 2012 Saratoga meet begins Friday July 20 and concludes Monday, September 3. Hours Gates open weekdays at 11 a.m. and weekends at 10:30 a.m. Post-time is 1:00 p.m. every day except Travers Day, when gates open at 7:00 a.m. and the first post-time is at 12:00 p.m. Two Fridays during the meet there is "Sunset Racing" where the first post time is at 2:30 p.m. Admission Admission tickets are sold at the gate upon entry into the track.

Picnic Area seating at the Race Course cannot be reserved. There is a tradition in Saratoga, however, to throw a tablecloth over a picnic table to "claim" it. People are usually respectful of this rule. Even so, these go fast, so make sure you get to the track very early in order to claim a table. For information during the Saratoga meet, please call (518) 584-6200.
Breakast at Saratoga: If you want to hang out at the track earlier, this is a really unique opportunity to watch the horses' morning workouts, while enjoying a delicious breakfast trackside. You can bring in your own breakfast and sit on the green metal benches in the apron (the space between the Clubhouse and the rail), or take in the fabulous breakfast buffet on the Clubhouse Porch. The buffet breakfast is served from 7AM until just before 9:30AM. (At 9:30, breakfasters must leave the grounds until the gates open a little later in the morning.)
