Herald Square's Day at the Races

This came up on my news alerts last week (from New York Daily News):

Herald Square won at $14.80 baby! I have no idea what that means. I've never previously attended the races, nor bet on them, but obviously this is a sign. I need to hie on over to Queens, visit the Aqueduct racetrack and place a little green on Herald Square. But it's too cold for the usual big hat, Gold Cup/Belmont attire, so I'm bundling up instead. (Is there even such a thing as an indoor horse racing track?)

Here's my fantasy outdoor sports jacket to be found at Macy's Herald Square:

By Spyder, and perfect for the racetrack or the day someone surprises me with Jets tickets. In store I couldn't figure exactly how much it cost because none of the tags were priced, which set off $$$ alarms. Correct! A little online hunt reveals this jacket is part of Spyder's "Platinum" collection, and is listed for $700. Go to Macy's after Christmas when it should be on sale. It's freaking awesome, and this from a girl who's never really fallen for an outdoor, performance type of jacket before.

Macy's Herald Square, 151 W. 34th between Broadway & 7th Avenue



gOOOOOOOOoooOOO Heralds Sqaure!;)

Ha ha! That's awesome.

Where's the horse named Prada? That's the one I want to bet on.

Husband Mike just bought a Spyder jacket a few weeks back and reminds me of its awesomeness every time he puts it on. Literally.

Love the belt detail on the lady model you've got on here ... and yet $700 seems a BIT steep!
