We’re heading down the homestretch at the Saratoga Race Course – there’s less than 2 weeks left in the meet.

And after checking out the latest attendance figures, the “Summer Place To Be” is living up to its nickname.

Attendance and on-track wagering at Saratoga Race Course have posted substantial gains and all-sources handle is even compared to 2010 totals through week five (28 days) of the meet, according to The New York Racing Association (NYRA).

Attendance through week five (28 days) was 632,600, up 3.7% from 609,943 in 2010.

On-track handle totaled $85,582,029, up 9.9% from $77,862,507 last year.

All-sources handle, which includes wagers on Saratoga races both on-track and from simulcast outlets nationwide, was $365,549,443, off just a fraction (0.2%) from $366,178,939 in 2010.

Average betting interests per race through week five were 8.2 (2,301 total) compared to 8.4 (2,271 total) for the first 28 days of 2010. Turf races totaled 111 with 30 taken off the turf, compared to 119 on and 23 off in 2010.
