The First Saturday in May is a near-holy day to we Saratogians, as we join with our kindred spirits in horse racing to celebrate the first leg of the Triple Crown: the Kentucky Derby.
If you’re a fan of horse racing, you’ll celebrate the day with a party of some kind: you may have a few friends over. You may go to your local OTB parlor, to be among kindred-wagerers and pick up some tips.
Or, even though it’s only the 10th of March, you may be picking out your big hat and best bow tie already–prepping almost two months out for the grand Kentucky Derby Party at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame–right here, in Saratoga. And The Brunswick at Saratoga Bed & Breakfast? Why, we’re just 1/10 of a mile–not even a furlong–from the Racing Museum.
(We have a special relationship with the Museum and Hall of Fame: our own Tom Amello is a lifelong horse racing analyst, and in fact will be on the Hall of Fame stage just one week before the Derby, to analyze the race and contenders for horse racing fans. We don’t just own a B&B in this community–we’re part of the community.)
Drink that in: the Museum’s party commences at 3:30PM on Saturday, May 5th. You can decide, now, to stay with us for that night–or two–and not only get the deep-dish discount–but thereby assure also your own safety, and that of your date and others on the roads.
So here’s our offer to you who plan to celebrate Kentucky Derby 2018 with the wonderful folks at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame:
