Saratoga Race Course Giveaways Announced
NYRA held a press conference today to, among other things, promote its giveaway days. There will 4 giveway days this year: a Alabama Stakes Baseball cap on August 2nd, a short sleeve shirt on August 16th, a long sleeve shirt on August 23rd and a winter Knit cap on Sept. 6th. I would guess the baseball cap and the winter cap ( a new giveaway item) will be the most popular this year.
The confusing thing is that the Baseball cap given away on August 2nd says "The Alabama 2009" even though the actual race is 3 weeks later on August 22nd. So if someone goes up to you later in the year when you have the cap on and asks if you were at The Alabama Stakes you can say: "No, I just went for the Cap, stayed all day , and still did not see the race".
