The first ever Saratoga Steeplechase Festival, previously scheduled for September 15th has been cancelled – for now. 2012 event plans included a chance to watch the races from the infield for the first time in 30 years and estimated the event would draw as many as 10,000 people! Anyone who purchased tickets and box seats will be refunded. Event organizers are hopeful the event can be rescheduled in 2013 and be even better!
Event Organizers hope to combine the event with the Saratoga 150, a celebration that marks 150 years since thoroughbred racing started in Saratoga! By postponing the Steeplechase Festival, there will be more time to plan and attain more support for this great event!
When a new date is announced, Saratoga.com will be sure to fill you in on all the details! Stay tuned so you can get your tickets early!
