There is a tradition in Saratoga, however, to throw a tablecloth over a picnic table to "claim" it. People are usually respectful of this rule. Even so, these go fast, so make sure you get to the track very early in order to claim a table.

For information during the Saratoga meet, please call (518) 584-6200.

Breakast at Saratoga: If you want to hang out at the track earlier, this is a really unique opportunity to watch the horses' morning workouts, while enjoying a delicious breakfast trackside. You can bring in your own breakfast and sit on the green metal benches in the apron (the space between the Clubhouse and the rail), or take in the fabulous breakfast buffet on the Clubhouse Porch. The buffet breakfast is served from 7AM until just before 9:30AM. (At 9:30, breakfasters must leave the grounds until the gates open a little later in the morning.)
