History of Thoroughbred racing in the USA by Keith Driscoll

Settlers from Britain who brought horses and horse racing with them to the American New World, with the first race track laid out on Long Island as early as 1665. Although the sport became a leading local activity, the development of organized racing did not arrive until after the Civil War. (The American Stud Book was begun in 1868.) For the next few decades, with the rapid rise of an industrial economy, gambling on racehorses, and therefore horseracing itself, grew explosively; by 1890, 314 tracks were at work across the country.

The breakneck burgeoning of the sport without any centralized governing authority led to the domination of various tracks by corrupted elements. In 1894 the nation's most distinguished track and stable owners met in New York to form an American Jockey Club, modelled on the English version, which soon ruled racing with an iron hand and ended much of the criminality.

In the early 1900s, however, racing in the United States was almost wiped out by antigambling feeling that led almost all states to ban bookmaking. By 1908 the number of tracks had fallen to just 25. That same year, however, the entrance of pari-mutuel betting for the Kentucky Derby signalled a turnabout for the sport. More tracks opened as many and various state legislatures agreed to make legal pari-mutuel betting in exchange for a share of the hard cash wagered. At the end of World War I, prosperity and great horses like Man o' War brought spectators flocking to race tracks. The sport prospered until World War II, dropped in popularity during the 1950s and 1960s, then enjoyed a resurgence in the 1970s triggered by the immense popularity of great horses such as Secretariat, Seattle Slew, and Affirmed, each winners of the American Triple Crown--the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness, and the Belmont Stakes. During the late 1980s, another significant decline occurred, however.

Thoroughbred tracks exist in about half the states. Public attraction in the sport focuses primarily on major Thoroughbred races such as the American Triple Crown and the Breeder's Cup races (started in 1984), which offer purses of up to about $1,000,000. State racing commissions have sole authority to license participants and approve racing dates, while sharing the appointment of racing officials and the supervision of racing rules with the Jockey Club. The Jockey Club retains authority over the breeding of Thoroughbreds.

Fun With PSP - Racing like a Looney

What racing game should I get for PS3?

What racing game should I get for the ps3? I already have Burnout Paradise and Motorstorm. I like racing games which are not too difficult. It would be cool if the game had trophies. I would love to play online on the game and race with other people. I love to race with fast and cool cars. I was thinking about Midnight Club L.A but I am not sure. Are there any other games which you think I should get?

Motorstorm Pacific Rift has trophies and it's 10X better than the original Motorstorm.

Grand Turismo 5 is really good it's the most realistic racing game ever.

Ridge Racer 7- It's a PS3 launch title so no trophies but it's cheap now and it is good arcade style racing.

Don't get any Need for Speed games those are bad.
