If the COVID-19 crisis has taught Saratogians anything, it’s that not even being barred from the physical racetrack can stop true fans from having a proper day at the races! On Thursday, August 13, Saratoga Living joined forces with the Saratoga Automobile Museum to host Horses & Horsepower, an afternoon viewing party of Saratoga Race Course’s races of the day at Putnam Place in Downtown Saratoga.

Socially distanced guests watched the day’s card live on a 17-foot LED screen while enjoying lunch from The Brook Tavern and Taquero. Prizes, such as a travel keg and gift card from Tailgate and Party, and handheld LED light therapy device from POLY ad an official Travers poster signed by artist Greg Montgomery, were raffled off to lucky winners. All guests went home with gift bags that included swag from Xpressbet and a copy of Saratoga Living‘s “The Races!” issue signed by Montgomery. Stay tuned for more info on upcoming Saratoga Living events.
