Long Island, New York, At Belmont Park, Elmont, c1913

In 1664, a British commander established horse racing in America at the two-mile Newmarket course on Long Island. The island later became home to the Belmont Stakes, the final horse race of the Triple Crown. By the time Belmont Park opened in 1905, horse racing had become a pastime of the masses, and more than 40,000 fans created a traffic jam trying to get to the first races.
