Free admission each Friday from 2 p.m. to close through the end of the year.

The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame will be offering free admission each Friday from 2 p.m. to close through the end of the year compliments of Embrace The Race. "Free Fridays" begin June 30 and continue throughout the year, including the Saratoga Race Course meeting.

Visitors are invited to take advantage of the opportunity to explore all of the Museum's offerings, including its newest exhibit, "Man o' War at 100," which chronicles the racing career and cultural impact of the 1957 Hall of Fame inductee.

"A core element of the Embrace The Race mission is to invest in fan development. This innovative program from the Museum is a great way to help people connect with the history and passion that is the essence of horse racing," said Michael F. DeAnzeris III, president and founder of Embrace The Race. "There is no better way for fans to show their love of the sport than with clothing and accessories from Embrace The Race. We are proud to be a founding partner of this great Museum program."

The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame is currently open from Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. From July 21 through Sept. 4 (Saratoga Race Course dates), the Museum is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

"We are pleased to be partnering with Embrace The Race on this initiative," said Cathy Marino, the Museum's director. "Like the Museum, Embrace The Race is committed to developing new fans of the sport and supporting ideas related to that concept. They are an ideal partner for Free Fridays and we thank them for their participation."
