Racing

For many people, the thrill of horse racing is confined to watching those three magical races each Spring that make up the coveted Triple Crown for Thoroughbreds. But what leads up to all that excitement? How do you train and condition such a young horse to be such a determined competitor? What's the day to day life of that jockey in the Winner's Circle? And was that jockey a woman? Racehorses are not just ridden but also driven down the stretch. Harness Racing has two Triple Crowns of its own: one for trotters and one for pacers. Steeplechasing and quarter horse racing will also be featured. With documentaries such as “Women in American Racing,” profiles of legendary race horses such as Secretariat, historic race footage such as the 1950 Hambletonian or Seabiscuit's “race of the century” with War Admiral, these videos will expand your experience and enhance your enjoyment of horse racing in all its forms.
