Off to the Races in Upstate New York


Descend upon idyllic Saratoga Springs this August for Travers Day, featuring the legendary Travers Stakes.

Nicknamed the "Mid-Summer Derby,” this American Grade I horse race is the oldest major stakes race for thoroughbreds in the United States. Furthermore, the Travers Stakes boasts the third highest ranking of races for American three-year-old thoroughbreds, trailing only the Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes. See for yourself why the Saratoga Race Course is regarded as one of the world’s greatest sporting venues.

You’ll introduce yourself to fellow Owners at a welcome reception at Longfellows Restaurant. Discuss your Travers Day predictions overlooking the quiet countryside and magnificent Adirondack Mountains that serve as the backdrop to this 19th century dairy farm turned boutique hotel and restaurant.

Spend the following day at the Saratoga Race Course for the most popular event of the whole racing season — Travers Day.

Enjoy a one-day admission ticket that includes access to The Easy Goer, a storied open-air section of the historic Victorian Grandstand. Dine at a buffet of seasonal fare, then determine the perfect way to enjoy the day’s activities. Stay seated in The Easy Goer and comfortably watch the races from the LED televisions. Explore the Grandstand and Backyard, and stand at the Trackside Apron for the closest view of the action. Place bets on any of the worthy contenders, then witness the push through the home stretch to the finish line. Applaud the champion horse as he is honored according to tradition with the elaborate blanket of carnations. Live in every moment as horse racing records its 151st running year of history for this great event.
