Default summer in saratoga

lads as many of ye know, im from ireland. Im hoping to spend the summer in the states ( I spent 3 months working in Hyannis MA last year!). I would love to spend it living and working in saratoga as i hear its a lovely city with a great racecourse. Anyway, im just trying to finalise my visa details now(might not get it-as its late). But i am just wondering, if anyone from around the area knows of any summer employment and/or accomodation available, id really appreciate it. You can email me directly at beeforsalmon@yahoo.com if you wish. Take it steady!

Brock!

Thrilled that you joined.. A pleasure that you're here. (For those unaware, Brock rivals only Somer in longevity on the ESPY Board... The 'Danehill' of posters..)

Drop me a note on the PM system or by Email and we'll see what can be done! Are you looking for something horse-related? Or something else? Let me know...

Steve

We gotta see what week, a timing issue. Men with families and all that rot. But I really want to go in a bad way. I just want to see such a fine track.

Thats about when I would like to go, so that could be fun. You seem to be a very interesting bloke. But I dont have a girlfriend. So if we do happen to meet up at the same time Kev, I would ask that you keep the exchange of saliva and other bodily fluids to a minimum.

Brock, hope you enjoyed Hyannis. I had a summer place not far from there in Yarmouthport. The Irish visitors have always made the summer fun on the Cape!!! Especially, the red headed chickies . If you have no luck up in 'Toga and you're on the Cape, please feel welcome over my place sometime. Goes for anyone on the board (depending on how much I have had to drink ).

Kev and others, if you do plan a trip up, let us know? My riding buddy and I have talked about going up for two years now, but it would be even more fun to go at the same time as some other Trail folks.

My husband is out of town for ten weeks this summer, doing a play in Ohio, so I can indulge my racing sickness to the fullest. Proving there really is a silver lining to every cloud.

Kev:
I give this girl 3, maybe 4 close losing photos at the track and shes a gonner! She'll be out of your life faster than Anew shot out of that gate the other day.

Do not take this gurl to the racetrack. Stay home and bake cookies with her and go on long walks on the beach. Thats a recipe for it working out!

"She is more excited about going than I am Tim"

She has no idea what she is getting herself into. Just dont throw change in her face when she laughs after you lose a close photo. I did that once, but it worked out for the best as the girl turned out to be a two timing tramp. It was the best photo I have ever lost in my life.
