Housing developers and builders in Saratoga County are always trying to tap into the magic and history of Saratoga Race Course.
Now the developer of St. Ledger's Woods, a new high-end subdivision in Malta, which is just south of the Spa City, has upped the ante in the race to blend the thrill of Saratoga with the comfort of home.
A group named Albany Partners recently hired a Hudson Valley artist to create a large sculpture of a steeplechase horse and jockey. The sculpture sits prominently at the entrance to the development, which so far has just a model home.
The sculptor of the horse, Rita Dee of Tivoli, Dutchess County, has created quite a buzz with her artistry.
