Tiz the Law and Barclay Tagg last year | Sarah Andrew

The New York Racing Association (NYRA) will celebrate New York Showcase Day at Saratoga this coming Friday, Aug. 27. The aim of the Showcase Day is to spotlight the state's breeding program with six stakes exclusively for New York-breds to be held, including the $250,000 Albany S. for 3-year-olds at 1 1/8 miles.

Tiz the Law posters will be given away for free while supplies last. A special autograph session will be held with the connections of last year's GI Belmont S. and GI Runhappy Travers S. winner, with owner Jack Knowlton of Sackatoga Stables, trainer Barclay Tagg, and jockey Manny Franco signing the poster at the Jockey Silks Room Porch from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with a recommended donation to the Backstretch Employee Service Team and the New York Race Track Chaplaincy. Tiz the Law hats and t-shirts will be available for an additional donation.

In addition, The Knight Caps, the official glee club of the United States Military Academy at West Point, will perform. Fans will also be able to purchase New York craft beer specials as well as taste complimentary samples from New York-based spirits producer Cooperstown Distillery.
