Schenectady kids get a look at Saratoga's backstretch
SARATOGA -- Kids who live far from horse farms got the chance to see the backstretch at the Saratoga Racecourse on Thursday.
Teens from the Boys and Girls Club of Schenectady were out on the Oklahoma training track bright and early in the morning getting a crash course on what it takes to prep and train a thoroughbred for a day at the races. The event was sponsored by local investment group Parting Glass Racing.
The kids also each got a t-shirt, lunch and transportation, courtesy of the 3M company.
