SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - The sights and sounds of the 2012 Saratoga Race Course season came to an end Monday. The jockeys and thoroughbreds took their final trot down Champion's Way, and raced their last race of the year.
"This was the best year, in my opinion, with the crowds, fan activities and betting increases. There was something new every day for racing fans," says NYRA Communications Director Dan Silver.
Silver says both attendance and NYRA's handle were up this year over last year.
