Declaring a winner for Saratoga season

Here's an interesting article about the Saratoga 2010 Season. Despite the rosy picture painted, there's also cause for concern. From the Albany Times Union:

Saratoga Springs

By most accounts, this summer's Saratoga Race Course meet was a terrific success — both for fans of local racing and the businesses they frequented.

Yet the post-meet glow may be hiding a few dark clouds.

Daily average attendance at Saratoga Race Course dipped this year for the third straight year, continuing a slide that has seen the track's average audience fall by nearly a quarter since the record-breaking meet in 2003.

This year's daily average was down by 7.4 percent — a drop that at first glance seems alarming.

But officials from the New York Racing Association, which operates the Saratoga track, say they expected this year's daily average to fall, largely because they extended the length of the meet from 36 days to 40 days.

    Dear Teresa,All of us at H.O.P.E. want to thank you from the bottom of our hartes for this post. During tough economic times, all of us involved with animal rescue get hit with a double whammy fewer donations and more unwanted animals to care for. This makes fundraisers such as this one at the track even more crucial to us. The more funds we can raise, the more animals we can help.I would encourage everyone who will be at the track tomorrow to stop by the H.O.P.E. booth. We’ll fill you in on what we’ve been doing, and maybe encourage you to take home a kitty or two!Thanks again, Teresa, you’re the best!
