Just wandering around Saratoga Springs makes me hungry. Visiting the track for a couple of days for the experience that is Saratoga Race Course. Visiting all the historical sites that are abundant in this region.
All this action causes my stomach to growl like the Revolutionary Army did when they spotted them Brits coming from the north and they was only a couple miles away. Go get ’em General Arnold. Show what it means to get your hiney shined.
Want to know more? Here’s some really good plagarism from the History Channel,
Fought eighteen days apart in the fall of 1777, the two Battles of Saratoga were a turning point in the American Revolution. On September 19th, British General John Burgoyne achieved a small, but costly victory over American forces led by Horatio Gates and Benedict Arnold. Though his troop strength had been weakened, Burgoyne again attacked the Americans at Bemis Heights on October 7th, but this time was defeated and forced to retreat. He surrendered ten days later, and the American victory convinced the French government to formally recognize the colonist’s cause and enter the war as their ally.
I just returned from Benedict Arnold’s Cabin and was thinking about all this history stuff as I ate my lunch. Then I wondered if Horatio, Benedict or even George would have ever thought how good this hamburger would be on this summer day.
Oh this place is four thoroughbreds for sure.
When The WiseGuy loaded the ponies in the starting gate, the post positions came out like this in the program of eats. Here’s how they line up in the gate, with number one on the rail being the favorite.
