Late NYRA Photographer Bob Coglianese to be Honored at Saratoga

Bob Coglianese | NYRA

Friday's first race at Saratoga is named in honor of Bob Coglianese, the late NYRA track photographer who passed away in December. Coglianese, who would have been celebrating his 89th birthday, spent more than half of a century documenting racing history. Friends from his decades at the track are welcome to join in the winner's circle presentation following the race and all are encouraged to turn their attention to the on-track screens for a video tribute. If you would like to honor his legacy, the Coglianese family recommends donations to the Belmont Child Care Association, the Backstretch Employee Service Team, or the New York Race Track Chaplaincy.
