Reserve A Table For Travers Day

Great news for racing fans - you can reserve a picnic table for Travers Day!

New for 2016, the New York Racing Association will be holding a drawing for reserved tables on Travers Day, Saturday, August 27, 2016.

The Drawing Process:

Fans who wish to reserve a table in one of two designated hospitality areas on Travers Day may enter the drawing up until Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. via NYRA.com/traversdrawing.

Half of the reserved table inventory for Travers Day will be allotted exclusively to 2016 Saratoga Race Course season ticket plan and season pass holders, while the other half will be available to the general public. Season pass holders must have an activated season pass by May 17 in order to be eligible to enter.

There is a limit of one submission per person.

Winners will be notified by phone once the drawing ends. They will then have 48 hours to claim their table. Those who enter the drawing, but are not selected as winners will not be contacted.
