I woke up this morning, ate my breakfast & shortly after I turned on my computer & started browsing the web. As my eyes perused the MSN home page, I noticed a little section called "On This Day". To my surprise the very 1st caption read, Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, NY Opened for their Opening Race Day 150 Years ago aproximately one month after the US Civil War Battle of Gettysburg.
Of course I know all avid horseplayers are already currently aware of this fact, but I thought it was kind of neat that this little snippet of history was being noted on the MSN home page.
I'm not a big #'s player, but hey one might consider playing 8-3 or 1-5 or any other # combination of this historic date.
Good Luck to All...
