Saratoga Springs, New York: National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame
There's no better place in America to lose your money than the Saratoga race track during its late summer meeting. No wonder part of "Seabiscuit" was filmed there.
If you do visit Saratoga Springs, you should stop by the Racing Hall of Fame just down the street. The inductees get a nice room of honor, and there are plenty of exhibits, videos, etc. Secretariat gets his own courtyard in the museum ... as well he should.
You'll feel really good about the sport when you are done with Saratoga, which can't be said about too many other places these days.
