There will be fans in the stands and inside the Saratoga Race Course. If you are vaccinated, you will be able to buy their tickets to this summer's meet starting today. There are designated areas for vaccinated patrons only. They include reserved seats in the Grandstand, Clubhouse, The Stretch, and Fourstardave Sports Bar according to News 10 ABC.

I am so glad that there will be spectators allowed at the Saratoga Race Course this summer. Last year the horses ran but it wasn't the same. Now there will be fans in the stands and we can enjoy the beauty of the track along with the excitement and fun that goes along with it. But beware because only those who are vaccinated will be permitted in certain areas during this year's track season.
