Horse Racing is what Saratoga is all about! Everywhere you go there is either a real horse, a statue of a horse, Horse carousel; horses are everywhere.
People line up before the gates open with coolers, chairs, food, and betting money. You can either pay $2 to get in and sit anywhere you want with TV’s all over the place watching the race –the atmosphere is unbelievable! You can also go in the main stand and watch it from there or book a table (not sure what the price was for that). Lastly, you can do what we did, book a VIP cabin with a tent over it and watch it from there. You can go on top of the cabin and watch it outside, or stay inside the cabin with air-conditioning.
Each bet is a minimum of $2. –Better luck next time for myself –I didn’t win one race (probably because the alcohol was betting instead of me!) My favorite horse was called “The Big Stick” –yep! I bet on that sucker!
