SARATOGA SPRINGS – It didn’t sound or look like the typical first day of school at Saratoga Central Catholic, and it’s not often that the 250 pound principal dresses up as a jockey, complete with an inflatable horse. Such is the case when the school is in the middle of Saratoga Springs, where horse racing is king.

The school and its parents wanted to have something fun and unique. They got the community involved.

Saratoga-based Death Wish Coffee provided the caffeine. The National Museum of Racing brought its educator, and track father-son buglers Tony and Carson Gambaro trumpeted in a new school year.

Hear what some of the students thought of it all by watching the video of Mark Mulhollands story.
