$1 Day At Golden Gate Fields Too Much To Resist

Dollar Parking, Entry, Program, Hot Dogs & Beer

It was a nice day, not much going on around here, the lure of the track, the deals at the track, were just too strong for me to resist. Besides I had a new betting strategy I wanted to try. Unfortunately it needs some fine tuning as I lost a little bit. One of the things I like about, betting on horses is, I feel like I have more say on the out come, as opposed to a slot machine. Racing starts at 1:45, the last race is about 6 PM. I look forward to my next visit, maybe today. Parking and general admission, most days, $11.

Sunday's Are $1 Days
