July 18th, exactly a week from tomorrow, track season begins!
People from all over the place come together for the next couple of months to bet over what Horse will cross the finish line. It's an exciting time of year filled with big hats, loud voices and a lot of people. Saratoga is jam packed from July until September. I decided to give you a heads up and a schedule on what Saratoga will be like for 2 months.
July 18th and 19th is Hats Off to Saratoga weekend. This means that there are supposed to be over 4,000 people in the streets of Saratoga. There will be a lot of live music and of course... big hats.
Every Tuesday is "Dark Day" which is the only day of the week, each week, where track is closed and there are no races taking place.
July 25th is College Day, a chance for college students to win prizes and maybe even win a free scholarship.
Every Monday is "Family Monday", a day where families can join together in specific activities.
Another famous day is Travers Day, which takes place on August 23rd. This is a famous race designed for only extraordinary 3 year old Horses.
Of course, there is final stretch weekend followed by Closing Day which takes place on September 1st.
I hope everybody enjoys Track Season and I will keep everybody updated on any other events taking place during the next couple of months!
