Going to Fenway Park and the Baseball Hall of Fame is a treat that all baseball fans should try to do during the summer months. If you are a horse racing fan, […]

My advice: Set aside a day and take the 3 1/2-hour ride to Saratoga. You can drive yourself or take advantage of the bus tours offered in the area.

Go up early and spend a few hours at the Hall of Fame and rewatch some of the classic races, such as Secretariat’s 31-length victory at the 1973 Belmont Stakes, which secured “Big Red” winning the sport’s first Triple Crown in 25 years.

After enjoying your stay at the Hall of Fame, head one mile to the track and take in the eclectic surroundings that make Saratoga so unique.

Horse players come in all shapes and sizes. Wealthy people dressed as though they just walked off the set of “The Great Gatsby” or the everyman hoping to cash in on a five-figure superfecta. The concessions are outstanding to hold you over until you head out to a delicious meal at one of the many restaurants in the area.
