Breakfast at Saratoga on the Lower Porch

Seating Capacity – 800 people

Breakfast on the Porch is an exciting, long-standing tradition at Saratoga racecourse. Every racing day from 7 to 9:30 a.m., breakfast is served on The Porch of the Clubhouse while the Thoroughbreds prepare for future races. Mary Ryan, a lifelong horsewoman, provides expert commentary for the workouts.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE NO BREAKFAST ON THE PORCH ON TRAVERS DAY, AUGUST 23RD, 2014.

Dress Code: Casual attire
Breakfast Admission: Free
Menu: Breakfast Buffet - $17.95 per person, $9.95 for children ages 3-12, plus tax and gratuity.
Seating: First-come, first-served.  Parties of 20 or more contact the Dining office at the number listed below.  
Parking: $10 trackside parking

One of the highlights of the breakfast program is the free walking tour of our famous and historic stable area (weather permitting). The first tram that takes you to the stable area, leaves the main Clubhouse entrance at 7:30 a.m. with additional trams leaving approximately every 15 minutes. The last tour departs at around 9:00 a.m. (The Tour is available every race day except Labor Day).

To make your visit as enjoyable as possible, we are offering the following Tour Tips:

  • Due to the huge popularity of the tour, trams are often full to capacity way before departure time. We strongly suggest that you plan your morning accordingly. Experience has shown that the tours popularity increases as the morning progresses.
  • No reservations are accepted. Trams are filled on a first come first serve basis.
  • Tour is roughly 45 minutes in length from start to finish.

Last tour leaves at approximately 9:00 a.m. or when the last tram is full to capacity.
The last tour of the morning is the most popular and for that reason, there are times when people must be turned away. In the event that does occur, we hope that you will consider taking the tour on your next visit.

Admission to breakfast is free, and those who elect to attend the afternoon's races are charged admission upon reentering the track. Patrons who leave before 10:00 a.m. receive a parking refund ($10 trackside). There will be no parking refunds issued on Travers Day.
