Many would agree there is nothing better than good food and a cold beverage when you are out at the racetrack. Although, the prices for such items often cause many to raise an eyebrow. One track is rolling its prices back
According to a report on fox23news.com, Saratoga Race Course will be "significantly" reducing prices on many of its most popular food and beverage items.
The report explains that the least expensive domestic beer available at the track in 2010 was a 20 oz. Coors Light for $6.75. This year a 12 oz. domestic will sell for $3. In 2010, the least expensive imported beer was a 16 oz. Heineken for $8 dollars. This year a 12 oz. imported beer will sell for $4.
Although, the price of suds are not the only things being reduced, as lemonade will be a dollar less (regularly $4.50, now reduced to$3.50), and popcorn will be $3.75 instead of $4.50.
The report also explains that the cost of a new value combo, in which patrons can get a hot dog or slider along with chips and a drink, will be an affordable $5.
The report quoted Stacy Marcelli, a mother of two kids, as saying, "I think it will make it affordable for all families to be able to go out and enjoy the track, and enjoy the season, without you having to borrow from Peter to pay Paul."
Another quoted in the report, Bob Marchese, went as far as to say, "It's a good idea. I think then entire country should follow this example."
