Of all the weird events at the track...

In addition to Fabulous Fillies Day and the Sizzling Hot Pink Saratoga Hat Luncheon, the New York
State Department of Health is putting on a little display and exhibit at the Saratoga Race Course.

Per the press release:  

"Newborn Screening Exhibit: The New York State Department of Health will display an exhibit on the importance of newborn screening at Saratoga Race Course. Provided by the Association of Public Health Laboratories, the national exhibit reveals the scientific discoveries that enable mass, rapid and accurate testing of newborns. The exhibit will be on display at the event tent on Wednesday and outside the Jockey Silks Room on Thursday before returning to the event tent again on Friday."
So in case you are visiting the track and think, "should I have gotten my newborn screened for various diseases before leaving the hospital?" this display will explain why you should have.

Now go bet.
