Saratoga Race Course closes out record season

September 02, 2019 11:18 PM

SARATOGA SPRINGS - Monday was the last day of racing at Saratoga Race Course for 2019.

NYRA says despite cancelling an entire Saturday due to heat and seven races on a Thursday during the meet due to rain, they still broke last year's record of all sources handled. That means the amount of money bet on races at the Saratoga Race Course this year was higher than last year.
