With Governor Cuomo announcing that seventy percent of New Yorkers are vaccinated, more restrictions have been lifted. The Saratoga Race Course has announced it will allow one hundred percent capacity at this summer's meet. Full capacity does not mean that there won't be certain regulations that need to be followed. You still may have to wear a mask.

The New York Racing Association (NYRA) says they will be opening all sections at the Saratoga Race Course at one hundred percent capacity according to News 10 ABC. You won't have to show proof of being vaccinated to get your tickets. You will no longer be required to show your vaccine cars at all hospitality areas and venues including the Saratoga backyard, the 1863 Club, and The Stretch. Non-vaccinated fans will have to wear a mask or facial covering at the Saratoga Race Course.

If you do show proof of vaccination on opening day, Thursday, July 15th, by using your New York State Excelsior Pass or their CDC vaccination card, you will receive free Grandstand general admission.

The Saratoga Race Course will again be the summer place to be. It is great to see that more summer activities are opening up to full capacity. I am so happy, not only for the hundreds of people The Track employs but all of those businesses that benefit from the thousands of people who come into that area for those few weeks. It will be amazing for the economy and all of those businesses that suffered through last year.
