“We wish to recognize the greatest Thoroughbred racing fans in the world for laboring with us during a rain-soaked first-half of the meet,” said New York Racing Association President and CEO Charles Hayward. “NYRA would like to salute its fans this Labor Day by inviting them to experience a day at the races on us with a chance to catch an early glimpse at some potential 2009 Triple Crown contenders in the running of the Three Chimneys Hopeful.”
Fans may arrive starting at 7:00 a.m. for the season’s final “Breakfast at Saratoga.” There will, however, be no backstretch tram tours.
Gates open for racing at 11:00 a.m.
Racing will resume downstate at Elmont, Long Island on Friday, September 5 with the opening of Belmont Park’s 38-day Fall Championship Meet.
