This gorgeous landmark was dedicated to the Whitneys - one of thoroughbred racing's most dedicated and philanthropic families - in 2013 during the Saratoga 150 Celebration.

Modeled after the 1892 Judges Stand at Saratoga Race Course, the Whitney Viewing Stand seeks to keep the rich history of Saratoga alive by combining the new with the old.

The Oklahoma Training Track is located across the street from the Saratoga Race Course. The easiest way to access the Whitney Viewing Stand is via Gate 21 on East Avenue. Admission is free.
