New York Trip Day 7

We spent the day at the racetrack in Saratoga. Between Liam, Helena, and I, we didn’t even lose $30, so we’ll consider that a success.

The spring water was quite a hit!

In the last race, there was a horse by the name of Plainview, which is where my car broke down a few days earlier. It was another loser.




We watched a couple of races upstairs, too.

Saratoga is a nice place to get real close to the horses. From the literature there, it is the only track where the horses have to walk through the crowds to get from the paddocks to the track.


Later we drove to Lake George where we saw the (closed) Fort William Henry, Lake George (the lake) and played miniature golf – 36 holes worth.
