The racing world waits all year for Saratoga Race Course to open. The wait will soon be over. The most prestigious racing meet in the world opens its 36-day 2005 meet on Wednesday, July 27th and will run six days a week through Labor Day, Monday, September 5th. First race post is 1 p.m., and there is no racing on Tuesdays.
Each year, Saratoga Race Course seems to grow both in its significance to racing and in its fan enthusiasm. This year will be no different, as Saratoga Race Course will offer 45 stakes, 30 of which are graded and 13 of which are Grade 1 races. Total stakes purses will exceed $10 million.
