There’s an effort every year to add new things at the Saratoga Race Course and in the business community – to both attract new people and keep regulars coming back.

That’s not easy after 160 years, but it seems every year NYRA finds ways to keep our interest in Saratoga.

This year, it’s the one-price admission. Everyone paying to get in gets access to the clubhouse.

An announced attendance last year of more than a million people over the course of 40 days translated to increases in sales tax, occupancy tax, and hotel revenue per room.
