It is summertime and everyone is looking for his or her next great vacation spot. Many New Yorkers choose the Hamptons or the Jersey Shore, or maybe even a trip down to Florida to visit grandma and grandpa. However, there is only one vacation spot that I will advocate for all you NYC residents, and that place is Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
Sheila Rosenblum knows a thing or two about grace, elegance and finesse while performing on one’s feet. But no one would accuse the former model and ballerina of tiptoeing her way into the world of horse ownership.
As we approach the highly anticipated Del Mar Thoroughbred Club summer meet, here's a list of some of the things to do in the San Diego area. Whether you’re here for a day, a week, or the entire meet, there’s plenty of things to to fill your time when you're not at the track.
“What in the world does horse racing have to do with speed dating?" you ask. Quite a bit. In fact, they complement each other perfectly. There’s no better setting to meet new people than the track and apps like Tinder or websites like Match.com and eHarmony can help you meet a prospective date, and day at the races can have a lot in common with online matchmaking and speed dating. Below are 10 reasons that’s the case:

Although Disney is known to many as ‘The Happiest Place On Earth” I beg to differ. And for someone who loves Disney as much as I do to say that does indeed speak volumes. Saratoga is far and away my favorite place on earth and I want every person to experience it and love it like I have for the past 23 (going on 24) years. Below I’ve complied a list of things to do and see while in Spa City.
Maybe it’s because this is my first summer in 17 years that I’m not living in the south, but there’s part of me that longs for the calm of a warm Georgia night of cocktail sippin’ and front-porch sittin’. Saratoga is almost here and that longing will quickly go away as I head upstate to my favorite place in the world – heaven on earth. Luckily, all 10 of these summer cocktails are perfect no matter where you live and are especially fun to enjoy during a day at the races. Cheers!
Thanks to some help from some of my awesome Twitter friends I’ve rounded up some of the best spots to grub out near Monmouth Park on a $200, $100 and $60 budget for two. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t already planning my United Nations Stakes and Haskell Stakes weekend visits around dining at these places – I can’t wait for the food or the great racing days ahead!
Monmouth Park is a destination racetrack for a number of reasons.
The track is aesthetically magnificent - from the jaw-dropping sand sculpture just beyond the turnstiles to the quaint paddock that often is surrounded by fans of all ages. The grounds are absolutely immaculate and there’s a constant breeze that makes you want to just take a deep breath in and exhale with glee.
If you’re still searching for plans for Fourth of July weekend, there’s no better place to spend it than at a racetrack. It’s an added bonus when that racetrack is located a stone’s throw away from the Atlantic Ocean. Enter a trip to Monmouth Park for the United Nations Stakes. No worries, these locales are nothing like the images you may have in your mind have of MTV’s “Jersey Shore.”
