Editor’s Note: This article was updated on 3/31/16 to include a link to details on the 2016 Season Perks program.
Have you been anxiously waiting for the start of the 2016 summer meet at Saratoga? You may still have four months until opening day, but if you’re planning on purchasing reserved seats for the full racing season, you only have two more weeks until you can reserve your tickets!
The New York Racing Association (NYRA) – operator of Saratoga Race Course – announced today that full-season reserved seat packages will go on sale at 10 a.m. EDT on Monday, March 28. Weekly reserved seat packages will follow on Wednesday, April 20, and daily reserved seats will be available for purchase starting on Tuesday, May 3.
Those looking to buy full-season and week-long plans will be able to make their purchases via NYRA AccountManager and can use the all-new Saratoga Virtual Venue! This allows fans to digitally preview their seat location and sightlines before purchasing tickets.
Fans who held season tickets in 2015 will be contacted by NYRA until March 25 and will have the opportunity to renew last year’s seats before the rest are opened up to the public.
All reserved seats purchased in advance include admission. Full-season plans include 40 days of admission based on the cost of a season pass.
Season pass and full-season ticket plan holders will receive special perks at and outside of the track this year as part of the 2016 Season Perks program! One of those perks is a guaranteed Saratoga premium giveaway on the day of the giveaway, so long as the pass- or plan-holder is in attendance at Saratoga Race Course and redeems the giveaway item by 3 p.m. This is the first year that giveaway items will be guaranteed for certain fans!
Looking to make reservations at one of Saratoga Race Course’s restaurants? You’ll be able to do so beginning on Monday, March 28 at 10 a.m. EDT. Call (888) 516-6972 to make your reservations at the Turf Terrace, Club Terrace, and the Porch.
