US race festival to offer breakfast betting on UK races

The famous annual race festival at Saratoga Race Course in New York State will offer this August simulcast wagering on live thoroughbred racing from the United Kingdom during breakfast.

The breakfast will be served in an isolated tent area at the race track from 8:45 AM to 3PM every day, which is equipped with dedicated betting facilities. It is intended not to disturb families and children who enjoy the regular breakfast.

Simulcast racing and betting from other countries, and in particular other time zones, has become more and more common in racing. It allows the full use of the facilities during longer periods and introduces the visitors to some of the best races elsewhere.
