    I am so sorry! My grandparents lived in Goshen and as a little girl I was horse crazy. I could stay at the track til noon, then anyone under 18 had to leave. Luckily by grandma had 3 old maid school teachers friends from her childhood who lived across the street in a big Victorian with a huge porch..facing the track. I sat there with them and a glass of lemonade and watched the race every weekend. My grandparents owned what is now Blue Sky Polo farm.
