SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Comic fans have Comic Con, and beginning in 2017, horse racing fans will have Equestricon.
The event is scheduled to start in summer 2017, and it’s dedicated to all things equestrian. The three-day event will include a racing arcade, live music, and countless stars from the industry for autographs and meet and greets.
The inaugural event will take place in Saratoga Springs.
“We came up with this idea to attract owners, bettors, really people that are just into the horse and do something that’s just for them,” Equestricon organizer Dan Tordjman said.
Equestricon is scheduled for August 13 through August 15 with hopes of going on the road to other prominent horse racing cities.
