The historic city of Saratoga Springs NY started out as a quiet little settlement with beautiful scenery and magnificent natural springs. As more and more people learned of its healing mineral springs, the area quickly grew into a luxury resort city.
High-society from all over the world made a point to visit the famed "Spa City" and experience the springs for themselves. Today, Spa City is still popular for its rich mineral baths and fabulous culture, but the Saratoga Race Course steals the show every summer with its live Thoroughbred horse racing.
Sports Illustrated once named the Saratoga Race Course as one of the top 10 sports venues of the 20th century, right up there with Yankee Stadium, Wrigley Field and others. This year the Saratoga race course is celebrating 150 years of racing with a five-month-long celebration that will last several months and include a wide range of events and activities.
The interconnected events of Saratoga Race Course and the City of Saratoga Springs tell a compelling story about wins, losses and the horses and people that were a part of it. Sunset Hill Stoneware is pleased to work with Impressions of Saratoga and be part of their 150-year celebration. Congratulations on an American success!
