As the horse racing season at the nation's oldest track comes to a close, here's how to get in on the last of the action.

Horse races have been run on Union Avenue in Saratoga County for 145 years. It is "the August place to be."  New Yorkers love gambling and love their equines.

Walk through the front gates, take in the air of royalty (it is the sport of kings).  The scent of thoroughbred is pungent, the anticipation of money is liberating.
