19. Saratoga Race Course, Saratoga Springs, NY

10 08 2012

I would never have attended a horse race were it not for this list. What can I say about horse racing that Hunter S. Thompson hasn’t already? Big hats, big horses, small riders. Everyone from the Nantucket red pant wearing bourgeois to the guy betting his last dollar. A true cross section of America. Bizarre, fun, depressing, but always interesting. Jen convinced me to bet on a horse – which I never would have done. We bet $20 and made $15. I felt feverish and wanted to bet everything I own on the next race. We left instead. A fun experience for sure.
