Saratoga is known for its Health, History and Horses. Fast-paced thoroughbred racing has made Saratoga a home for over 150 years. In 1941, the trotters joined the racing tradition when the first live harness race was held on the beautiful half-mile track at, now Saratoga Casino & Raceway. 2016 will mark the 75th racing season and the live racing action returns this month. Racing this March is generally Thursday through Sunday with varying post times. For the full racing schedule, go online to saratogacasino.com.
Still known to many as the Saratoga Harness track, today people can view live races outside at the rail, in the lower clubhouse, in the Grandstand or while dining at Fortunes Restaurant or Lucky Joe's. For the best seat in the house during live racing, dine at Fortunes Restaurant, overlooking all the action of live racing. You can place wagers right from your table. In addition, you can watch and wager on live racing in New York or from tracks around the country, year-round, on one of the many TV's located in their Mezzanine.
