Reserve A Table For Travers Day

NOTE: The New York Racing Association (NYRA) has not yet announced 2018 Travers table reservation information. We will update this page once they do. In the meantime, read through last year's information below for a general idea of what to expect.

New for 2017, fans can purchase a reserved table flex plan to guarantee themselves a reserved table in the Fourstardave Sports Bar or Miller Lite Picnic Paddock seven days of their choice, including Travers Day, Saturday, August 26, 2017. Reserved table flex plans are available for purchase by calling the NYRA Box Office at 844-NYRA-TIX.

Additionally, there will once again be a drawing this year for members of the general public who are interested in purchasing a reserved table for Travers Day.

The Drawing Process:
