I spend most of the weekend between two places, the race track and the blueberry patch, and honestly, it was kind of perfect. Opening Day I fit in a couple hours between camp pick up to watch a few races and then Saturday we brought the whole family over.
In years past I would have probably spent more time at the races, maybe more time at all the dinners and galas and hoopla, but lately it feels 1,000% better to pop in for an hour or two then change back into cutoffs and flip flops and spend the rest of the day hanging out with the kids in the middle of a blueberry patch, just us. That’s what I love about Saratoga, one hour you can be in the middle of a huge crowd all cheering on the ponies, and the next you can bike over to a farm and bike home to make pancakes all in less than an hour.
I had so many of you ask about the custom monogrammed jockey pieces I had this weekend, if you are interested in getting one of your own, email me at Jenny@Mamatoga.com but the time frame for these items is extremely limited so orders will be taken on a first come, first served basis. You can get the jockey on a vintage bermuda bag, a large boat tote, you name it, we can design it for you… xoxo
