  • Saratoga is absolutely Gorgeous!!!! The races were, to say the least, EXCITING and FUN, and a wonderful place to vacation with friends and family and try your luck on the horses!!! Delicious restaurants and late night bars! We met some of the nicest people also. Sure bet on a good time for all❤️❤️❤️
  • We loved the track and the grounds overall, the thing we had issues with was the 3 days in the turf terrace clubhouse. The view was spectacular, but there wasn't any room to move around. The tables were so packed together you were constantly bumping the person behind you when you tried to get up from the table, and if you were on the inside of the table, everyone had to get up and walk into the narrow aisle to let you out. It was like they crammed an extra table in each row of the seating areas. The food was decent, service was okay. Other than the over packed clubhouse, Saratoga is the one of the best tracks we've ever been to.
