Hope everyone state-side had a fabulous, long 4th of July weekend! I chose to stay in the city this year and take some time to relax, bbq with friends, hit the beach, head to my favorite restaurants... just chill and celebrate my independence pretty much. But I thought I'd kick off the week with some snaps from my day at the Belmont Racetrack a few weeks ago, cause what's more American than a good ol' horserace served up with a few cold beers, concession-style food and some cash bets on the side?
I was actually already a huge fan of Belmont from years past, when my friends used to book a party bus for the Belmont Stakes and we'd all dress up in our finest dresses and hats and picnic on the grounds. Having been invited by America's Best Racing association to enjoy a private box this time around, my experience here was a little bit
classier different, but that didn't stop us from having the best time. The weather was perfect, the box seats were awesome and I even managed to win a few of my first bets... though I think it was just beginners luck seeing as the last ones didn't pan out so well. Moral of the day? You win some, you lose some. Might as well create some fun memories along the way...
