National Museum of Racing announces 2024 Saratoga County farm tour series

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame is partnering with seven Saratoga County farms for exclusive behind-the-scenes tours. The Museum’s farm tour series kicks off Saturday, April 27, at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds. There will be a total of eight tours — including a special visit to Old Tavern Farm during the Belmont Stakes Racing Festival — with the series concluding in October.

Guests will enjoy a 90-minute experience at each thoroughbred farm, where a knowledgeable guide will provide a comprehensive look at the day-to-day operations and what makes each farm unique. Guests will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with resident thoroughbreds and farm staff. Finally, at the close of the tour, guests will have the opportunity to ask their guide any questions they may have about the care and keeping of these beautiful animals and aspects of life on the farm. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended on these tours.

“These tours have been very popular and they offer a wonderful educational experience that will truly resonate with race fans and horse lovers,” said Cate Masterson, the Museum’s director. “Visiting these beautiful farms are incredible opportunities to learn about the daily life there, the care and routine of the horses, and the chance to meet the people who make these operations so successful and vital to the community and racing.”

Each tour is $30 for Museum members and $40 for non-members. All tour purchases include a complimentary Museum admission. To book a farm tour, click on your preferred date and farm below:
