Amplify Horse Racing Announces Saratoga Educational Experiences

Amplify Horse Racing has announced four upcoming educational experiences at Saratoga Race Course, on Thursday, July 27; Thursday, August 10; Thursday, August 17; and Thursday, August 31.

Launched in 2019 and conducted in collaboration with NYRA and NYTHA, these immersive behind-the-scenes tours are tailored to high school and college students, and aim to educate about the number of career opportunities in racing. The all-day experiences run from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, beginning on the backstretch with morning training. This segment includes visiting a trainer’s barn, speaking with a veterinarian, a discussion about aftercare, and learning about racetrack maintenance. After a break for lunch, participants reconvene in the afternoon for live racing, where they learn how to read a racing program while watching horses saddle in the Saratoga paddock, visit the silks room, and hear from additional presentations including the racing office, communications department, and more.

Each event is limited to 20 participants. Interested individuals can learn more and register HERE. Please contact Annise Montplaisir at with questions. Images available upon request.
