Saratoga 150 Time Capsule

Saratoga150_TimeCapsule

 

Organized in honor of the 150th anniversary season at Saratoga Race Course, the time capsule will make a series of stops throughout the Greater Capital Region to collect items and memorabilia from 2013 to commemorate the milestone year. 
 
The time capsule will start its journey from Belmont Park where it will receive a 2013 Belmont Stakes program with signatures from jockeys and a collectible item from the 40th anniversary of Secretariat’s historic run in the last leg of the Triple Crown. 
 
The voyage will continue to the New York State Capitol where it will receive an official proclamation from the Governor’s Office. Various other items of importance to the community will be added throughout the week before the time capsule reaches its final destination at Saratoga Race Course. 
 
Additional items will be added throughout the 2013 summer meet at Saratoga.
 
Update:
Contact Joanne K. Adams at jadams@nyrainc.com to make arrangements to drop-off items for the Time Capsule before the end of 2013 Saratoga meet.
