The best that horse racing has to offer is now over and done with until 2015, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get your fix elsewhere—and we’re not talking about off-track betting. In upstate New York there’s a museum dedicated to all things horse racing, and it might just be what you need to get through those moments of sadness and depression.
The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame does its thing in Saratoga Springs, New York, and right now it’s open to one and all most days of the week—they take Mondays and Tuesdays off until later this summer. The place does its best to share the fun and entertainment surrounding thoroughbred racing in the country, and they’ve got all kinds of goodies to do so. Memorabilia, art, books, videos, and other artifacts all do their thing to shape the story of the ponies in the United States.
Admission will set you back $7 for adults and $5 for the kids and the grandparents. Permanent exhibits include plenty of equine art, and of course you’ll be able to check out plenty of trophies, awards, and other victory prizes in person. The Hall of Fame is also here to see, so you’ll be able to relive the best of the best. There’s even a special exhibit running throughout the month that shows off and reveals the best of the best in horse racing history from Saratoga Springs.
Sure it might not be as exciting as watching the horses come down the stretch, but until next your it might just help you get your fix.
