Ever since San Mateo's Bay Meadows Racetrack shut its gates two years ago, the racing season has been nearly a year-round affair at Golden Gate Fields (1100 Eastshore Highway, Albany). But the horses at the Albany oval do at least get the summer off. Many of the thoroughbreds will travel the fair circuit, going to Pleasanton, Stockton, and other glamorous spots. The better-quality horses will travel to Del Mar to hobnob and eat hay with the elite. But for EastBay bettors, this may be the last chance to wager within the comforts of your own neighborhood. Then use the summer to rest up; around the time school restarts, Golden Gate Fields will, too. Friday through Sunday, June 11-13. 12:30 p.m. first post; $4, Sunday $1. 510-559-7300 or
