A local graduate is back in the Capital Region for the summer, as a trainer at the Saratoga Race Course.
Growing up on a farm in Stillwater with a father in the harness racing game, Abigail Adsit had training in her blood at a very young age.
Adsit is a graduate of Saratoga Springs High School and Union College and even though her career has taken her to Long Island, Adsit says there would be nothing like winning at home.
Just 26 years old and on her own for the first time as a trainer this year, Adsit has grown her barn from one horse in January now to 10.
Now, following in the footsteps of Trainer Linda Rice, she aims to become a force on the NYRA circuit.
