NYRA opens the 142nd race meet at Saratoga Race Course

NYRA opened the 142nd race meet at Saratoga Race Course on July 23rd with the new arrival of restauranteur Danny Meyer's Shake Shack, Blue Smoke and The Paddock Bar. Located next to the paddock, this exciting new addition will allow our fans to enjoy fine fare in a beautiful setting until 9pm.
Opening weekend will feature the Saratoga debut of the Betfair TVG Coaching Club American Oaks on July 24th and NYRA will showcase this day with a display of antique coaches from the late 19th century.
NYRA is proud to offer the Community Outreach Booth for the race season. Organizations from the surrounding communities will have an opportunity to showcase their mission and collect donations on track. In addition, NYRA is proud to support our local organizations through the donation of our Community Outreach Box which has assisted in raising thousands of dollars for charity. For information about the Booth or Box, all interested parties may contact me at 518-584-6200, extension 4805.
