Horse racing fans can look forward to the return of harness racing at the Saratoga Casino Hotel, starting next week! Although spectators are not allowed at the track due to COVID-19 guidelines, you will be able to bet remotely, and SaratogaBets has a deal for you.
Harness racing will resume on Thursday, June 18 at the Saratoga Casino Hotel. Races will run two days a week, every Thursday and Sunday, with a 12pm post time. Fans can wager remotely on the races through the hotel’s wagering platform or through any other New York State-approved online wagering platform.
For all Saratoga Harness wagers SaratogaBets is offering a 5% bonus, as well as double the money back on program purchases. These bonuses are in addition to up to 5% in daily or weekly player reward payouts regularly offered to the account holders.
“We’re very excited to resume our 79th season of racing here at the historic Spa Oval, and are particularly happy that our horsemen will be able to get back to the sport they love after a time that’s been difficult for so many,” John Matarazzo, Director of Racing Operations at Saratoga Casino Hotel, said in a statement.
The hotel has developed polices and procedures with regard to the harness racing in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the safety of their employees, the horsemen, and the animals. The casino remains closed for the time being, and the hotel is taking room reservations beginning July 1.
