SARATOGA SPRINGS - The track held its first-ever International Day on Thursday.

Belly dancers representative of India were among those entertaining race fans.

It was all part of a day-long celebration of global culture.

Irish step dancers welcomed those who went in through the clubhouse entrance, and flags from around the world were flown around the track.

International day seems to coincide with the goal of NYRA'S new CEO who says he wants to expand racing's fan base.
