Clubhouse Breakfast at the Track

Every racing day during the Saratoga meet (except for Travers Day) you can have breakfast on The Porch of the Clubhouse at the Saratoga Race Course and watch the horses work out!

This uniquely Saratoga experience is not to be missed, and we highly recommend taking breakfast at the track at least once this summer.

Frequenly Asked Questions about Breakfast at the Track

Do I need reservations?

No, breakfast is first-come, first-served.

Do I need to buy breakfast to watch the work outs?

No! The track is open to the public prior to 10 am and you can watch the workouts without paying for breakfast.

If I buy breakfast, does that include my admission to races for that day?

No, unfortunately not. The track will be cleared prior to the start of racing and you will need to pay Race Course admission on re-entry for the afternoon races.

Are there tours included with breakfast?

Stable tours are free and depart from the main Clubhouse entrance, leaving approximately every 15 minutes between 7:30 and 9 am. These tours are first-come, first-served, and tend to fill up more quickly later in the morning. Reservations cannot be made for these tours. Tours take place every day of live racing, except for Travers Day and Labor Day.

There are also daily walking tours of the track, which are very affordable. For only $3 per person or $10 per family you can get a historical overview of the track and learn about the property highlights. Tours leave at 9:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm, and 2:30pm each racing day.
