Newest Casino Grand Opening

PRESS RELEASE – The City of Black Hawk welcomed their newest casino with the Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening Ceremony of the Saratoga Casino, Black Hawk.  Following in the grand tradition of Saratoga Springs, the ceremony featured a live race horse and two Dixieland Bands.

Saratoga Harness Racing, Inc. (SHRI) acquired the property previously known as Fitzgeralds Casino Black Hawk, just five short months ago. The opening follows a $7.5 million renovation of the property which includes a new table game area, upgraded games and titles, an escalator which improves access to the remodeled third floor, the addition of Diamond Jim’s Bar and the 120-seat Garden Buffet restaurant.

“As we mark another important milestone for our company today, we are very proud to introduce the essence of world class Saratoga Springs, a celebrated name in tourism, to Black Hawk,” said Dan Gerrity, President of SHRI. “The unveiling of Saratoga Casino Black Hawk establishes a little piece of Saratoga in the Rockies.”

Acknowledging Fitzgerald’s previous successful service to their customers, Black Hawk Mayor David Spellman said, “The Fitzgerald’s Casino and Brand has been good for Black Hawk and good for the customer for a number of years, but as is self-evident, the City of Black Hawk embraces change. In particular, when that change serves to stimulate and re-invigorate the action and excitement Black Hawk is known for.” Mayor Spellman concluded by saying, “That is precisely why it is a pleasure for me to welcome Saratoga Casino into the City of Black Hawk. We have no doubt that where Fitzgerald’s left off, Saratoga will continue to compete with the enthusiasm and success of Seabiscuit and Secretariat, all for the enjoyment of the Black Hawk customers.”

The historic City of Black Hawk is located just 39 miles from downtown Denver on the Peak to Peak Scenic and Historic Byway.
