Normally this time of year the Saratoga Racetrack is bustling with people, horses, jockeys, and of course the smell of Shake Shack burgers fresh off the grill.

Unfortunately, with the track closed to spectators, the tradition of watching the ponies with a vanilla shake, juicy burgers, and those perfectly golden crinkle fries seemed to be lost this year. Well....maybe not.

Starting July 24,, for the first time ever, Saratoga residents will be able to order Shake Shack outside of the racetrack. The Saratoga Race Course Shake Shack will be open for pickup and delivery only via DoorDash and UberEATS.

You can get all the usual classic Shake Shack food and Saratoga’s exclusive Sloppy Tracks Shake - vanilla frozen custard blended with salted caramel, topped with cocoa powder.

The Shake Shack will be open from 11 am-6 pm Wednesday-Sunday. All delivery orders will be delivered in a new, fully sealed bag.

So, there you go some more good news on your Friday. I know it is frustrating to have horse racing at Saratoga without fans in the stands, but hopefully, this helps a little.
