Veterans Day Giving Day: Sponsor-a-Veteran

Giving Day, taking place on November 11, 2019, empowers all fans, followers, volunteers, friends, family, veterans, and members of the Saratoga WarHorse community to take part in a daylong giving event dedicated to helping our veterans and off-the-track Thoroughbred racehorses get back on track. 

Our goal this Veterans Day is to raise the funds required to serve as many veterans as we can before the end of 2019. Our existing program sessions through December 31st are currently booked to capacity, but we can add additional sessions with the money raised on Veterans Day. Your donation will have an immediate and tangible impact for veterans-in-need.
