Memories of Racing Season
I’ll never forget the first time my Dad took me to Saratoga for my first horse race. There’s something special about that place, selecting a horse by the name on the monitor and having Dad open his wallet for a couple of bucks. Who cares about winning. It was just a great memory being at the historic race track in the middle of Summer.
Because of this experience, when I moved to Florida in my college years, I jumped at the chance to checkout the greyhounds. Fun, but in my opinion, not as much fun as horse racing.
When I was at Tioga Downs Casino last week, I made a mental note to do the Derby Fest coming up May3rd. Live free harness racing is on my radar. Free is good and seeing the Jason Wicks Band again is always a good thing. In fact, there are a number of bands playing Derby Fest 7. Again, getting together with my Dad and some friends in the fresh air for a day at the track could be a lot of fun.
Memories in the making.
