Gift cards on-sale at select Stewart’s Shops in Saratoga County, while supplies last

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Shoppers will have the opportunity to give the gift of world-class thoroughbred racing this holiday season with a special offer of NYRA Bets Gift Cards available exclusively at Stewart’s Shops in partnership with the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA).

Beginning Black Friday, November 27, NYRA Bets Gift Cards will be available for a limited-time only, while supplies last at participating Stewart’s Shops locations in Saratoga County.

The gift cards, which are available in $50 denominations, can be used to fund both active and new NYRA Bets accounts to bet online, including during the fall and winter meets at Aqueduct Racetrack and spring meet at Belmont Park, in addition to hundreds of racetracks worldwide.

The gift cards do not expire and may also be used to bet Saratoga online and the Triple Crown series in 2021.

The special holiday season offering follows a tremendous reception to the introduction of NYRA Bets Gift Cards this past summer during which more than 12,000 cards were sold through Stewart’s Shops from mid-July through Labor Day.

“We were thrilled beyond all expectations with the success of the NYRA Bets Gift Cards which we first introduced this summer in partnership with Stewart’s Shops,” said NYRA Bets President Tony Allevato. “We are excited to make these gift cards available as a limited time holiday offer for horse racing fans who may use them to bet this winter or during next year’s Saratoga meet. We thank our fans for their continued support and wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy holiday season.”

“Given the enormous success of the NYRA Bets Gift Card Program over the summer, we are happy to extend this offering to our customers through the holiday season,” said Stewart’s Shops President Gary Dake. “It’s a perfect stocking stuffer for any horse racing fan and just one of the many ways that Stewart’s makes your life easier.”
