Saratoga Facebook Game Begins Aug. 3rd

The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) and Equibase Company will launch the official “Play Saratoga” Facebook game on Wednesday, August 3.

 

The free game, developed by Cornett Integrated Marketing Solutions, includes daily, weekly, and grand prizes, and will run through Labor Day, September 5, the end of the Saratoga Race Course meet.

 

Fans can sign up to play through their Facebook accounts by going to the Equibase Facebook page, the NYRA Facebook page, or by visiting playsaratoga.com. 

 

“We are very pleased to partner with Equibase and bring this exciting game to our many Facebook fans,” said NYRA President and CEO Charles Hayward. “NYRA maintains a robust social media presence on Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, and YouTube, and the Play Saratoga game provides yet another fun way for people to follow and interact with the best racing in the country.”

 

“We have seen the fun social side of Facebook by posting Equibase Yearbook races and with the creation of the Stats Profile pages app, giving fans different ways to comment on their favorite horses, jockeys and trainers,” said Equibase President and COO Hank Zeitlin. “Now with the Play Saratoga game, fans can actively participate on Facebook with Saratoga's great racing.”

 

To earn points, players select the top three finishers of each race on the Saratoga card before post time for race one. Scoring for each race ranges from 175 points for selecting the trifecta in correct order down to 25 points for correctly selecting a horse to show.
