NYRA drops track-model giveaway, replaces it with baseball cap
Delays in replica production force the change
SARATOGA SPRINGS A baseball cap will be added to the list of giveaways this summer at the Saratoga Race Course to replace a model of the track, which was supposed to be given out.
Delays in producing the replica forced the change.
The hat is a familiar design from years past, with the 2013 Saratoga logo on the front and Saratoga 150 logo on the back of the red, white and black cap.
“The Saratoga baseball cap giveaway is a perennial favorite among our loyal racing fans,” said NYRA Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Rodnell Workman in a statement. “We are excited to once again offer this high-quality cap to track patrons during our 150th anniversary season at the Spa.”
The giveaway schedule is now a short sleeve T-shirt on July 28; a Fourstardave bobblehead doll on Aug. 11; a cap on Aug. 18; and a Saratoga beer stein on Sept. 1.
Giveaways are free with a paid admission and while supplies last.
