Happiness is a day at the track
A difference of opinion is what makes horse racing and missionaries ~ Will Rogers
I grew up near Saratoga and I try to make it back for the races as often as I can. I like horse racing, the horses are incredible, I like to wager, the track is beautiful and the atmosphere festive. I have friends who are dead set against horse racing because of the impact on horse’s lives, can’t argue that they don’t have a case but I do enjoy the sport.
Hell in Saratoga there are even horses on the street:
Last week I went up to photograph morning workouts, the track is a little eerie that early in the morning but also oddly beautiful.
