This little booklet was given to newbies at Longacres Racetrack in Renton, Washington in the 1980s to educate the novice on the ins and outs of thoroughbred horse racing. With great photos and illustrations, the reader is guided through the racing industry in Washington State, the types of races, the jockey’s equipment and breeding of the horse, how odds are determined and much more. Longacres was closed in 1992 after operating for 59 years. This is a lovely collector’s item from a legendary track. Softcover, 12 pages, great condition.
