We have written here before, that the proprietor of the Daily Racing Blog was first introduced to the wonderful world of horse racing by way of Uncle Louie.
And while Uncle Louie may not have been a blood relation, he was somehow integrated as a part of the family.
It was the type of situation where you didn’t ask HOW he was your Uncle until later in life, and by then it didn’t matter.
What did, and still does matter is that he took us to Saratoga Racetrack in our youth.
Some readers may not have had the benefit of visiting the best track in America in your formative years, that would have allowed you to be introduced to the Sport Of Kings in such historic fashion.
So why does one want to visit a horse track anyway?
There are perhaps, those of a certain age who think it’s something their grandfathers liked to do, but it seems boring, and they’re not interested.
Well, we at The Daily Racing Blog think otherwise. Watching horse racing at the higher levels of the sport is a wonderful experience.
DRB is not much for any other forms of sports gambling, and doesn’t see the fun in losing money in some dark, smoky casino.
But horse racing ? It feels like entertainment, an experience, an outing.
You are outside soaking up the sun and ambience. There is a lot of history and tradition behind it.
You get to spend all afternoon and/or evening outside, watching beautiful animals perform at their peak ability.
All in all, Win or lose money, a great time is still had at the track, and life-long memories are made.
And if you’re looking for an affordable, unique date, where you won’t run out of things to talk about, look no further.
So get to your local track and have a blast
