Tuesday, August 24th!
Returning to the beautiful Saratoga Winery on August 24th, the TRF BBQ at the Barn, will be hosted as an in-person event in 2021. We hope you'll bring your friends and family - all ages welcome - for an evening of fun & fundraising for the horses who make Summer in Saratoga so very special.

This casual, family-friendly event brings together all the best elements of Summer in Saratoga - friends, food, music, fun, celebrities, raffles, a silent auction and our miniature TRF herd Ambassadors Lily and Tinkerbell.

In addition to the delicious BBQ meal included with each ticket, the event will feature book signings by Chris Brown, author of “Roll Cyrus Roll” and award-winning broadcaster and former jockey Donna Brothers, author of “Inside Track”. There will also be children's games & activities with guest appearances from racing celebrities and community VIPs including Maggie Wolfendale-Morley, Tom Durkin, Acacia Courtney, Ramon Dominguez and more!

Tickets are available at a special early-bird price of $40 through August 1st. After that date, the price increases to $45 per person.

Tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be sold on the day of the event.
