Attention racing fans: season ticket plans for the 2018 meet at Saratoga Race Course are about to go on sale! Get all the details on what the ticket plans entail, the new hospitality space at the track, and when weekly ticket plans and single-day tickets go on sale.
Full-Season Ticket Plans
Full-season ticket plans will go on sale on Tuesday, March 20th, at 10am. These ticket plans include admission and reserved seating for the entire 40-day summer meet in the Grandstand or in the Clubhouse.
You can buy season ticket packages online through NYRA Account Manager, where you’ll be able to view a digital map of where your seats will be before purchasing.
All season ticket plan holders are automatically enrolled in the Saratoga Seasons Perks program, which offers a number of discounts both at the track and at participating establishments elsewhere in Saratoga. These discounts will be valid from June 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019.
In addition to great deals and discounts, season ticket plan holders are guaranteed a Saratoga premium giveaway item on the day of the giveaway. To receive this giveaway item you must be present at the race course, enter through the designated season ticket holder lines, and redeem the giveaway by the designated time.
Full-season plans are also currently available for 200 premium reserved seats, a limited number of dining tables, and 20 reserved bar seats in Saratoga’s newest hospitality area, The Stretch.
The Stretch is located at The Top of the Stretch and features modern amenities in a casual environment. Guests at The Stretch will have access to a full-service bar, kitchen and concessions, high-def TVs and video screens, special events, and private restrooms.
Seating for The Stretch will be top notch, with a great view of the horses as they come around that final stretch.
All premium reserved seating is anticipated to sell quickly. So if reserved seating at the track is something you want, don’t wait!
“We are experiencing an unprecedented level of demand for The Stretch, which has met with a tremendous response from racing fans,” Lynn LaRocca, NYRA Vice President and Chief Experience Officer, said in a statement. “All available boxes are reserved for the season and the remaining inventory is selling fast.”
Whether you’re looking for seating in the Clubhouse, Grandstand, or The Stretch, there is something for everyone and a season plan is the best way to ensure you don’t miss a moment of horse racing action.
