SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY – A couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Opening Day at the Saratoga Race Course.
George and Jennifer Golder were met with a surprise anniversary party at the picnic area.
The track has been a special place for the Golder family. Jennifer explains their family has made annual trips to Saratoga for the last four decades. "We have a history here and it was opening day and our kids grew up. We've been coming up to Saratoga for 38 years and our kids thought it was a perfect thing, because our actual anniversary is July 20th. Friends, relatives, dear friends, from all over the country were getting of this bus so it was amazing."
Their daughter was also able to get the second race of the day named in their honor calling it "Golder's Golden Anniversary Race."
