    I can't top the eloquence of Red Smith, but my quote is Saratoga is to horse racing as Augusta
    National is to golf. If you are at all interested in racing, you must visit Saratoga.

    Don't waste your time visiting the Saratoga (harness track) Casino which is probably the worst
    casino that I ever visited.

    I use to go to Saratoga for my birthday every year.

    I think it i the most beautiful track in the country.

    Would stay at a bed and breakfast , maybe 20 minutes away.

    Really nice.

    Was Joe Montana ridin 49er that day? Best track I've ever seen is Santa Anita, been there many a day, attended the 1986 Breeders Cup there. One team of the Budweiser Clydesdales, was based there at the time.

    I took a bunch of pictures at the track. We visited the Racing Hall of Fame which is right across
    the street. I can't wait to go back. It would be a great place to visit with your (guy) friends. I compared
    it to Augusta National. IMO, it was nicer than Yankee Stadium, Fenway and Wrigley if I were to
    rank sporting venues.

    If anybody wants me to forward my pics, send me a private conversation note.
