One of the best places to watch a horse race is in the infield.

The history of horse racing in North America has a long history. The first organized races in the colonies were held during the British occupation of New Amsterdam. Col.

Stamina was a hallmark of the American Thoroughbred until the Civil War, when speed became the key.
Similarly, the image of a horse race has been around much longer than the modern techniques of opinion polling. The Boston Journal used this image in its election coverage as early as 1888.

And because of the growing popularity of horse racing, Louis XVI introduced several rules to the sport. These included requirements for a certificate of origin and extra weight for foreign horses.
