The Race Course in Saratoga sees big names both in the grandstands and coming out of the starting gate. Don't be intimidated - you can be a part of all the excitement in a place where beginner's luck is just as important as seasoned advice.

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.
