Every morning with the sunrise, thoroughbreds with their grooms and riders make the trip between historic Horse Haven on the Oklahoma side, across Union Avenue to the main track. They link the first classic Saratoga racing to the new energy of a Saratoga racing season.
The well-worn path across Union Avenue, protected by crossing guards, has seen some of the greatest horses in history. Among the most beautiful animals on earth are these thoroughbreds — right here, at arm’s length, moving through deep shadows into the morning light. It’s quintessentially Saratoga and it’s a gift to be there.
