The Track

August 27, 2013

I am sitting here watching horse racing on TV. This is the best way to do it, because you can pick your horses, make your imaginary bet, and at the end of the day never lose money. However, when you have tracks like Indiana Live near Shelbyville, it is very nice to go to such a beautiful facility and bet a few bucks on your favorite horse. Local owners, like Doug Wilson and Ron Fledderman, both have run horses at this track. They keep this track extremely clean, the Club House is attractive and roomy, the food is good, and you have monitors at your table to watch the horses run. If you prefer, you can enjoy the races trackside without going to the Club House. I am waiting to see what River Downs is developing, because all summer they are building a new racino–track and casino combined. Everyone says it will be a show place. I still like to watch those beautiful thoroughbreds come thundering down the stretch. We are fortunate to be within driving distance of some of the top tracks in the nation including Keeneland, Churchill Downs, Turfway, and the two already mentioned. If you like harness racing, there is the Anderson, Indiana, race track.
