Fabulous Fillies Day
All Day Event
NYRA will celebrate women and their contributions to the thoroughbred industry while raising funds to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) through Play for P.I.N.K. at Fabulous Fillies Day.
The celebration will be highlighted on-track with decorative pink bunting and flowers, the iconic Sea Hero statue in the paddock will be draped with a pink horse blanket, and all New York Racing Association staff members will wear pink ribbons. Additionally, all jockeys riding in the day's card will wear pink armbands to commemorate the occasion and pink saddlecloths will be used during the sixth race named in honor of special guest Barbara Banke.
Fans are encouraged to wear pink to show their support for breast cancer awareness. Guests will have the opportunity to make monetary donations to the BCRF at numerous areas throughout the track during the day. Guests who donate will receive a free pink breast cancer awareness wristband.
The centerpiece of the day-long affair will be the sold out Sizzling Hot Pink Saratoga Hat Luncheon presented by Escada and Moet & Chandon in the At the Rail Pavilion. This year's luncheon will honor Banke, owner of Stonestreet Farms and Chair and Proprietor of Jackson Family Wines.
