As I drive to and from the Saratoga Rowing Association boathouse or to Global Foundries, or to Albany, I see them.
Beautiful thoroughbreds practice 6 to 11 a.m. daily.
The 2012 meet begins Friday, July 20th. Forty racing days. Ending Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 3.
So much anticipation. The beginning of everything racing, especially to those who live around the track.The excitement penetrates your very being.
You smell it, feel it in your bones and see it everywhere you go.
Roads clog, some people get annoyed but for me, it is heaven.
People who you don’t see for a year suddenly reappear. New faces. My face is one of those relatively new ones and, so for me, personally, this is one of the most exciting times to live right smack dab in the middle of Saratoga Springs, New York.
