SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY – On Monday, the New York Racing Association (NYRA) unveiled three Saratoga Race Course themed face masks for sale, benefitting local non-profit organizations. The face masks come in three different colors – red, black, and white – and 3 packs are available for preorder beginning today for $24.95.
The most interesting part about this? The track is opening on July 16th. These masks are expected to ship in early July…Coincidental timing for Saratoga themed masks if you ask me!

This is actually a nice gesture from NYRA, and I’m glad to see the profits will be going to a local Saratoga non-profit. Whether or not it’s any sign of fans being allowed at the track is unclear, but I like to lean on the optimistic side.
