SARATOGA SPRINGS -- Saratoga Race Course attendees no longer have to worry about the sun in their eyes or having something to sit on while at the course.
The New York Racing Association announced this season’s giveaways on Tuesday, including both a Saratoga cap and a beach towel. Gates for all giveaway days are open at 11 a.m. and items are available on a first-come first-served basis.
Along with the below giveaways, NYRA will offer an exclusive white cooling towel for season pass and season ticket holders on Opening Day July 11.
Picnic cooler - Sunday, July 14
Days at the track just got cooler.
NYRA is giving away a red picnic cooler with a white Saratoga logo as the first freebie of the season. The giveaway coincides with the course’s annual hat contest, so now you won’t need to carry too much food as you’re showing off your new massive sun hat.
Saratoga baseball cap - Wednesday, August 7
It may not have come in time for the hat contest, but you can get your hands on a Saratoga cap for absolutely free. The cap, presented by Saratoga Casino and Hotel, will feature the iconic Saratoga logo with a red, black and gray camouflage print.
Saratoga beach towel - Wednesday, August 21
This year’s first two giveaways may prepare you for a day at the beach, but no beach day is complete without a Saratoga towel.
For the third giveaway, the Upstate Ford Dealers-sponsored circular towel highlights the Saratoga grandstand as a horse and jockey charge down the track. There’s nothing quite like drying off with Saratoga.
Saratoga zip-up hoodie - Sunday, September 1
As the season winds down and so do temperatures, Lia Infiniti is presenting a Saratoga sweatshirt to give away. The hoodie is grey and includes the red Saratoga logo.
While it may not tie in with the above beach trifecta, Saratoga has you covered for the fall, too.
