Saratoga Race Course Admission

For many years Saratoga had a traditional two-tiered structure for admission to the track. Guests could pay one price to watch from the Grandstand and another to watch the races from the Clubhouse in years past but that's changing for the 2023 season. The NYRA has announced that for the first time, a single admission rate will provide fans with access to both the Clubhouse and Grandstand.


Admission Options at Saratoga in 2023

Race fans will have a few options when it comes to buying tickets this year. If you purchase tickets at least 24 hours in advance admission will be $7, which is a saving from last season’s Clubhouse price of $10. If you wait and buy tickets on the day of your trip it'll cost you $10. Admission does not include reserved seating.
