According to the Saratogian, a dumb a$$ called a bomb threat into the Saratoga City Police Department on Wednesday around 5pm (my words, not theirs). The call was traced to a NYRA phone line at the track.

According to police lieutenant, John Catone, a male caller told 911 dispatchers there was a bomb but nothing was found to substantiate the claim.

City police called bomb-sniffing dogs to search the area. No findings were reported. Sounds to me like somebody had a bad betting day and wanted to ruin the fun for everyone.
