I grew up going to the Chicagoland tracks where my Grandpa was a pari-mutuel teller at a Thoroughbred track during the day and often a Standardbred track at night. 1960s. My husband grew up next door to Commodore Downs in Fairview, PA. Together, we've been to Churchill, Gulfstream, Saratoga, Aqueduct, Belmont, Laurel, Presque Isle, Mahoning Valley, Belterra and Fairgrounds. We spent our wedding evening, a cold December night, at Mountaineer. We had the place to ourselves! Love your site and all the detail.

Wow, thanks for putting this site up. Lots of interesting history of horse racing. I enjoyed the photos and old race programs. I have only visited Belmont, Monmouth, Freehold and Saratoga. Looking forward to future tracks. Keep up the great work! :!clap:

I enjoyed the read. I, too, have many great memories of a youth and beyond spent with joyous afternoons at horse racing tracks big and small. I was especially fond of the smaller fair tracks on the California circuit. I have lots of great memories of those times shared with my grandfather but fewer and fewer opportunities to make new memories at county fair racing venues.
Those were the days my friend...we thought they'd never end, we'd sing and dance forever and a day....we'd live the life we'd choose,,,,we thought we'd never lose.....those were the days

I've been to the old Gulfstream Park and the new one and have to say I enjoyed the old one much more. I've also been to Calder and have to say that was a disappointment. I know that it is now known as Gulfstream Park West. Did they knock it down or just change the name? I also have been to Pompano Park and the Sanford-Orlando dog track. Neither to me was memorable. I also was at the Hollywood dog track. Also forgettable. I want to try to get to Tampa Bay Downs as it looks pretty nice on TVG.
