The Saratoga Race Course is indeed the summer place to be.

And the numbers for the 3rd week of the 40-day meet prove it.

Wagering at Saratoga Race Course, on-track, downstate and across the country continues to outpace 2010 totals through week three of the meet (16 days), according to The New York Racing Association (NYRA).

Attendance was up through Saturday but is now down because of one less giveaway day so far this year.  Attendance through week three (16 days) was 325,809, down 5.4% from 344,252 in 2010.

On-track handle totaled $47,896,094, up 7.7% from $44,463,694 last year.

All-sources handle, which includes wagers on Saratoga races both on-track and from simulcast outlets nationwide, was $216,977,480, up 1.0% from $214,748,425 in 2010.

Average betting interests per race through week three were 8.6 (1,372 total) compared to 8.5 (1,311 total) for the first 16 days of 2010. Turf races totaled 65 with 12 taken off the turf, compared to 70 on and 12 off in 2010.
