Time Capsule to Honor the 150th

By Staff Report | News

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Representatives from The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) will accompany a time capsule on various stops throughout the Capital Region as it makes its way to its final destination, Saratoga Race Course, in celebration of the 150th anniversary of thoroughbred racing at the Spa.

The time capsule will make the following stops to collect items from various communities to be included in the historic piece: from the New York State Capitol, an official proclamation from the Governor’s Office; from Union College—presentation from faculty and students; Crandall Library—presentation from library and community; as well as items from Saratoga National Historical Park, the Neilson House, Stillwater, Ulysses S. Grant Cottage and Saratoga Race Course. 

Organized in honor of the 150th anniversary season at Saratoga Race Course, the time capsule will make a series of stops throughout the Greater Capital Region to collect items and memorabilia from 2013 to commemorate the milestone year. 

The time capsule will start its journey from Belmont Park where it will receive a 2013 Belmont Stakes program with signatures from jockeys and a collectible item from the 40th anniversary of Secretariat’s historic run in the last leg of the Triple Crown. 

The voyage will continue to the New York State Capitol where it will receive an official proclamation from the Governor’s Office. Various other items of importance to the community will be added throughout the week before the time capsule reaches its final destination at Saratoga Race Course. 

Additional items will be added throughout the 2013 summer meet at Saratoga.
