70,792 Lured to Saratoga; 2nd Largest Crowd

Saratoga Race Course recorded its second-biggest paid attendance of all time when 70,792 came through the gates Sunday.

Lured by a Saratoga stadium blanket giveaway, Sunday's attendance was topped only by the 71,337 recorded on Aug. 17, 2003 (wall clock giveaway).

Saratoga has now attracted a daily on-track crowd of at least 10,000 for 237 straight days.
