Data shows Saratoga Race Course brings in more fans than many pro sports teams
It turns out, based on annual paid attendance, the Saratoga Race Course draws more people every year than the Knicks, the Nets, the Islanders, the Rangers, and the Buffalo Bills.
The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce crunched the numbers for the 40 days of racing at Saratoga.
They compared that to all of the home schedules – 41 games each for the Knicks, Nets, Islanders and Rangers, and eight home games for the Bills. Saratoga Race Course draws more fans.
The only New York teams who attract more fans than the track are the Yankees and the Mets.
