The New York Racing Association. Inc. (NYRA) will partner at Saratoga Race Course establishing the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame as the official curator of the space currently known as the Saratoga Walk of Fame, the organization said in a release Thursday.

Through this collaboration, the Hall of Fame will present fans with a rotating display of informational panels, multi-media presentations and a variety of relevant historic artifacts culled from its extensive collections.

Located behind the grandstand just across the pedestrian path from the Miller Time Fourstardave Sports Bar, the open-air Walk of Fame is easily recognizable from oversized displays of racing memorabilia and its Saratoga-style, turret-spiked slate roof.

“We're excited to share some of the most popular items in our collection at Saratoga Race Couse, a place synonymous with racing history,” said Hall of Fame and Communications Director Brien Bouyea. “We hope it will help fans feel and appreciate the pageantry of our sport, so much of which happened right in Saratoga, and we're grateful to NYRA for the opportunity.”

Among the items to be featured this summer are informational panels about each Hall of Fame category; panels and bios in recognition of the Hall of Fame Class of 2023; video features of select Hall of Fame members and a virtual reality jockey experience.

The Hall of Fame will present rotating trophies of historical significance from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET each Friday of the meet.
