Just three hours from Manhattan and you’re in the quaint town of Saratoga Springs, New York. I have been to horse races, but never Saratoga. This year our family spent a beautiful weekend and enjoyed everything from betting on the horses to just soaking up the culture of being at an event with so much history. Saratoga is the oldest race track in the United States and some say that it’s the oldest sporting venue in America. The meet used to be just four days, but over the years, days were added and now it is around 40 days and generally concludes Labor Day weekend. Horse racing is still one event that no matter where your seats are, you can walk up and get really close to the action. Between races is the perfect time to find a spot for an up close view, place your bets or get something to eat….Like a Lobster Roll! Yum!Over dinner we discussed what we would name a race horse, not that we are getting one, but it was entertaining. I think Madeline had the best ideas, but you decide… “Would You Like Fries with That?” or “On the Side” and the best one: “Eyes Up Here” What would you name a race horse?
