Multiple entrants will then be chosen to sing the National Anthem on either a Saturday or Sunday during this year's meet at Saratoga, which runs from Friday, July 20 through Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 3.

Limited to one entry per person, each must feature the contestant's own rendition of the National Anthem. Lip-synching by the contestant or use of a pre-recorded voice will disqualify entry. Voice-altering mechanisms or programs are not allowed.

Winning contestants will also be offered four clubhouse or grandstand seats on the day of their performance.
