Clubhouse Breakfast at the Track

Every racing day during the summer meet (except for Travers Day and Labor Day), you can have breakfast on The Porch of the Clubhouse at Saratoga Race Course and watch the horses work out! This uniquely Saratoga experience is not to be missed, and we highly recommend enjoying 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.

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?

For the 2023 summer meet, NYRA has announced that mornings at Saratoga Race Course will feature free, guided backstretch tram tours, courtesy of the Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA). Tram tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are 45 minutes in length. The tours will depart from the Clubhouse entrance approximately every 15 minutes from 7:30am - 9:00am. They will not be available on Travers Day or Labor Day.

  • A round-trip trolley ride from Saratoga Race Course to Song Hill Thoroughbreds on Wednesdays or to Old Tavern Farm on Thursdays and Fridays
  • 60- to 90-minute guided walking tour of an active thoroughbred breeding farm
