 They Mobbed The Joint!

TUESDAY, JULY 2, 2019   

11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Did Frank Sinatra invest in a Hancock racetrack for a New England mob boss? That’s what the U.S. House Select Committee on Crime wanted to know in July 1972 when it called Sinatra to testify about his $55,000 investment in a half-mile horse racing track just outside of Pittsfield. We’ll visit the former race track and hear the story of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin’s adventures. The site, now a Morgan horse breeding farm and riding stable, will also give us some demonstrations.

Tour, talk & OLLI CHEFS serve lunch!

This is farmland so walking from barn to barn may be challenging. Wear sturdy shoes. Driving directions will be sent a few days prior to the event.
