    horse racing at Saratoga Springs NY

    TommyDawg I agree with Mr Denton there. I had a home in Saratoga as well for many years. I agree regarding dress, except for the Travers. Saratoga a bit casual compared to Kentucky. If not at the track, but private areas. You may want to do khaki, polo shirt. Most people are out at the track. I...

    Quality of ALLEN EDMUNDS, please help

    Gentlemen Thanks so much. My belt was not the bridle one. I paid 98 for it, and again, the metal is non metal. Cheap. It is a composite of something. Maybe a hard plastic, or combination. The leather is fine. It was not metal, not a brass like I am used to. The only reason I got, was this...
