Working Horse

Saratoga Work Horse

A morning tour of Saratoga Race Course, includes a visit to the backstretch area, where we could be up close and personal with the horse racing crowd. Now I don’t mean the owners, bettors and party folk found in the grandstand and clubhouse; I am talking about the workers, jockeys, trainers, and horses. This fellow has the powerful look of a former race horse, but his well-worn blanket and saddle, along with the two-way radio tell me he’s earning a living on security detail.
