On Sunday, October 31, 2010, while many families were perhaps out trick-or-treating to celebrate Halloween, Andy Rooney delivered a nice promotion for Saratoga during his segment on “60 Minutes.” He noted that his parents grew up in Ballston Spa, New York, and that he has seen most of the “great horses” at the Saratoga Race Course. This promotion came as he offered his own review of the movie, Secretariat.
Mr. Rooney noted that seeing a movie, like Secretariat is nice, but there’s no substitute for being there. The Chamber certainly hopes that his viewers follow that advice next July and August when the best horses again return to the historic Saratoga Race Course.
