Saratoga Race Track Opening Day

The highlight of summer in Saratoga is the summer racing meet, featuring world class thoroughbred horse racing! Saratoga Race Course Opening Day is Friday, July 21, 2017 – so get ready for another thrilling season of racing in Saratoga Springs!

About Saratoga Race Course

Summer never truly begins in Saratoga until the historic Saratoga Race Track opens. Throngs of people from all over the world gather at the Race Track with one common interest -- to hear “And they're off!” Adrenaline pumps as the crowd goes wild with cheers of encouragement to their favorite picks of the season.

There are a variety of viewing options available at the track in addition to the Grandstand or Clubhouse. For those that like to be in the thick of things, seating is available near the Course to watch the race up close and personal. There’s also the option to camp comfortably with blankets and lawn chairs in the region of the screens, conveniently located around the track grounds.

Live music adds to the ambiance at the Saratoga Race Track, and near the front gates, there are vendors that sell beautiful pictures of the horses, jockeys, and the grounds. Another feature the Race Course offers is a chance for you to view your favorite horse. Before the horses run out on the track, they are brought to the paddocks where they can be viewed and admired.
