Who knew Kentuckians made such a fun day of horse racing? Fall is a great time to visit the track. The weather is great, the scenery is beautiful, and people love to tailgate until the races start (or even skip the races and tailgate all day). The traffic wasn't nearly as hectic as it seemed in the spring. We had a good spot for setting up and because it wasn't too hot or too cold, we didn't need our tent. We literally set everything up on the tailgate and hung out for the morning. Then we had seats for the races (SO much better than general admission) and had a great time betting on the races. The staff is friendly and makes it easy to learn if you are new to the betting world.
