By a Neck

#6 To Honor and Serve beats out the favored #3 Mucho Macho Man by a neck to win the $750,000 purse in the 59th running of the Woodward at Saratoga Racetrack.  See my pick #7 Cease who ceased running I guess and ended up in 3rd.

Though this is not in Binghamton, it does show one the places that you can get to for a day trip from Binghamton.

2012 Chris Thater Memorial Criterium

Binghamton is lucky to have a professional cycling race every year.  So much fun to watch the cyclists hit the turns in our roads in speeds that seem way to fast to navigate successfully with other cyclists within inches of them. 

The Chris Thater Memorial is dedicated in memory of Chris Thater, an avid cyclist, who was killed by a drunk driver. The event is a project of the Broome County STOP-DWI Program to heighten awareness about the drunk-driving problem. The race attracts over 1,500 participants from local athletes to world-class competitors with crowds of over 10,000 spectators. The Chris Thater Memorial consists of the Pro, Elite and Novice cycling events, and a national class 5K Run.
