Fabulous Fillies Day at Saratoga Race Course

There was a PINK OUT at Saratoga Race Course on Friday, August 17th to celebrate women and the glamour that they bring to the track each year! NYRA is proud to partner with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation ("BCRF") and we are delighted to announce that close to $100,000 was raised on the day.

NYRA was proud to honor an extraordinary woman in the sport of Thoroughbred racing, Virginia Kraft Payson.

All fans dressed in pink received free admission and one lucky lady won a diamond necklace thanks to NYRA sponsor, Northeastern Fine Jewelers.

The Sizzling Hot Pink Saratoga Hat Luncheon was place to be this season and we were honored to have J. Dirk Iglehart, MD, BCRF top researcher, as our guest speaker. BCRF President Myra Biblowit attended the luncheon and ESPN's Jeannine Edwards was the emcee.
