Saratoga Springs – A trip back in time

Written by Aksel Ritenis


In the 19th century, wealthy New Yorkers boarded private trains and traveled to Saratoga Springs to bathe in the healing mineral waters and experience what is still regarded by many devotees of the sport as the best thoroughbred racing in the country.

Little has changed 144 years later as the Saratoga Race Track opens on Friday, July 20th featuring the finest racing in the country through Labor Day, September 3rd. What is different now is that one doesn’t have to be a robber baron to experience Saratoga. The city welcomes families and horseplayers alike with a wide range of activities, fine dining, and an exciting night life.
