Saratoga Race Course has finally kicked off its 2020 summer meet, and although spectators are not currently allowed at the track, you can still bet on the horse races online with a NYRA Bets account. As part of a new initiative with long-time partner Stewart’s Shops, the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has announced that NYRA Bets Gift Cards are now available at more than 150 Stewart’s Shops locations across the Capital Region.
Bet on the Races at Saratoga
This exciting new initiative provides fans with an easy way to bet and give the gift of Saratoga during the summer racing season. These NYRA Bets Gift Cards are available in $50 denominations and can be used to deposit funds into both active and new NYRA Bets accounts.
In a press release, NYRA Bets President Tony Allevato said, “Our goal in introducing NYRA Bets Gift Cards is to make it as easy as possible for fans to continue to engage with Saratoga Race Course during this unprecedented time.”
Fans who open a new NYRA Bets account with one of these gift cards will be eligible for a deposit match from their initial deposit. Each preloaded $50 gift card includes a unique four-digit PIN, and after purchasing a card, fans can enter the PIN into their new or existing account. You will be able to immediately use these funds when betting with NYRA Bets.
Fans should note that the funds can be used to bet on the races at Saratoga and other tracks and races, including the Kentucky Derby on September 5 and the Preakness Stakes on October 3.
Gift cards are available for purchase now by cash only at participating Stewart’s Shops. See the list of locations >>
