Saratoga Trunk - Friday Day 1
Early Friday was spent picking up the Maryland/NJ gang at the Albany airport and train station. We had to be at the Holiday Inn by 10 AM to get online for Grand Stand tickets. While the ladies took care of getting the tickets....the gentlemen retired to the bar for drinks. A short time was spent at the Gelato shop and a very little bit of shopping. The evening was spent at the Harness Track and Racino. This place did not allow cameras so no pictures for you. The Racino sucks and is only good for losing money. Harness racing is fun to watch but difficult to bet on. My only decent bet was on a horse that broke stride about 100 feet into the race.
Stay tuned for pictures of the Backstretch tour (awesome), the races, Sunday breakfast and clubhouse, Yaddo gardens and Albany/NYS Museum/911 Exhibit.
