People tend to check in during these times:
Nice to see every once in a while, but not a great spot for a casual horse racing fan.
Nice place to bet the ponies. Oldest flat track in America.
My horse Miss Matzoball today
Fried Chicken Big picnic areas. Old Racetrack. The best summer time track on the East Coast.
We were in the pavilion for an office party. The food was delicious and the place is just beautiful! We even got to pose with some horses.
Had a great time when we went last summer with the Eagles Club!!
Suicide Prevention walk today!

Beers on the backstretch. $2.85
A day at the races
Come a early and get a picnic table
Beer, fried chicken and horse racing. Ain't nuttin wrong with that.
If you don't have clubhouse access, it's hard to beat a high top table at the Post. You are close to everything; the Paddock, betting windows, the Veranda deck bar, and most importantly, Shake Shack.
For the ladies - we all know the racetrack is all about the fashions. No hat? --> No problem! Fascinators and hats are available here at the track!
Here we are with family
Picnics in the open areas. Pizza and sandwiches. Just an all around good time.
Get here very early and claim a picnic table by putting a tablecloth on it. Then go back to sleep & return later. (And don't mess with the picnic table with the Becks tablecloth on it!)
Gonna win this time!
Ninth race comin' up!
Lots of excitement. Play to win, but place and show are equally rewarding. Have fun.
Tip big, bet small, talk to everybody, explore everything and BYOB.
Bring your own cooler
This is a great track with lots of history and very nice ambiance. My only complaint is that some people smoke those stinky cigars like chimneys!
Tip your teller!!! Today is 8/17 and my window is 817
Bring your breakfast with you and sit in the boxseats; nothing beats a beautiful morning at the track.
an awesomely old timey track for watching the ponies. call ahead and reserve a table in the clubhouse and go to the terrace for best views. and you best eat fried chicken at Hattie's stand for lunch!
Dress nice and go with a group of friends!
Can bring your own food and beer in
Time to get lucky at the horse races!
They raffle off the worst horse of the day at the end of the 15th race. Sit in row F for the best chance of winning (don't ask why, just do it).
JUST THE TIP JUST THE TIP
I coming here this summer.
Turf Terrace is the place to be, remember to bring singles to the men's room for the attendant and he'll handicap the race for you.
4 tents to the right of the main gate is a white tent. $5 for hot dog, soda, and Saratoga chips.
Drinking works better than betting
NO GLASS allowed in your coolers, Cans only!
Take the Tram tour in the morning, breakfast is so so. Get here by 8am if you want a picnic table and make sure to watch at least one race from the top of the stretch!
Be sure to sample from the Big Red Spring in the back yard.
Buy a program to help pick races. Also can park outside in street to save $.
You can bring in your own food & drinks (no glass!). The on-track food selections are also really good with lots of diverse selections from local establishments.
Get in early to get a good spot by the TVs
Beautiful day at the Skidmore College Saratoga Classic Horse Show,
Fun place to go during Track Season!! Beautiful place
Oldest organized sporting venue in US still operating. After race, head into town & enjoy sidewalk musicians while strolling Broadway & deciding where to dine. -Suggested tip from Edward C., associate
Head to the top of the stretch on the apron and hang out in the sun on the benches. Its less crowded and you ask me for a hot tip.
