Celebs Love Saratoga & Could Be Spotted Any Time

Celebrities love Saratoga Springs for various reasons, but the race course is definitely at the top. Since the Spa City's best celebrity spotting season starts a little earlier than usual, let's look at the celebs most likely to be seen.

A long time ago, the Saratoga Race Course had a slogan that some of you may remember: "The August Place to Be!" Over time, as the racing season grew in popularity and length, the August place became "The Summer Place to Be!"

But horseracing isn't Toga's only bread and butter.

It has world-class spas, a lively downtown, great bars, shops, golf courses, casino nightlife, gourmet restaurants, and SPAC.

30-40 years ago, when people wanted an exciting night out in the Capital Region, they often went to Lake George for a change of scenery.

But over time, Saratoga claimed its place as the area's number one spot for excitement, highlighted by the glitz and the glamour of the racetrack and everything else the "Spa City" has to offer.

The Stars Come Out in the Summer!

The stars come out in summer, and the Saratoga racing season begins on July 11th through Labor Day weekend. The biggest turnout of the year will be Travers weekend, August 24th-26th, highlighted by the running of the Runhappy Travers Stakes.

It's safe to say that weekends will attract the most celebs, influencers, high rollers, and big shots. If you keep your eyes and ears peeled to the streets and luxury suites, you may spot a famous musician, a movie star, a Barstool Sports pizza reviewer and owner of the famous Miss Peaches, a Hall of Fame coach, or an actual Prince!

Since Upstate New York's best celebrity spotting season is now upon us, let's look at the celebs in Saratoga Springs most likely to be seen!
