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.
