What's New in Saratoga

Track season may be coming to an end in the next week, but Spa City is ready to close it out with a bang. The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, along with NYRA, will once again host the annual Final Stretch Festival this weekend. 

It's here, finally! Saratoga has been buzzing all week in anticipation of one of the biggest events of the year: The Travers!

This year is definitely special in comparison to past years, with Triple Crown Winner, American Pharoah, racing in the 146th running of the Travers. With such exciting news comes a lot of changes to take into consideration when heading to the track this weekend! Luckily for you, we've rounded up everything from fantastic celebrations to new security protocols you should be aware of.

Whether this is your first time attending or you're a seasoned vet -- take a look at our Travers roundup:
