Saying goodbye to summer is never easy, but last week I discovered for myself an excellent way to do so. It is something most race fans already know: go to Saratoga.Given that I have been in my line of work for a number of years now, the fact I had never set foot on the grounds of one of this country's most historic racetracks had become a bit of a dirty little secret. Most people assumed I had, and it was always awkward to confess the truth.
I can happily join the multitudes that love the Spa. It is charming, it is welcoming and it is undeniably beautiful.
The Keeneland September sale is the largest in the world of its kind, and what happens there during these next two weeks will help determine what horses you see on the race track for years to come.
