I remember as a little girl going to Belmont Racetrack with my parents. I don’t remember the horses as much as I remember the fun carnival games and rides they had out for the kids. I think we went on Father's Day so that's why they had fun things to keep us busy.
Now I may not know a thing about the races, but I do know parties, and having a fun theme – horses, the races, a horseshoe – can be a lot of fun for guests and the host. So invite the gang over, pass out jockey helmets and if you have a betting pool, give the winner a beautiful rose garland.
