There has been one classic American pastime that has been underserved for far too long. Quite possibly it is the most graceful of all sports, blending the grace and swiftness of the horse with the strength and dexterity of the jockey. It requires vigorous training, a regimented lifestyle, selective breeding, and most importantly, passion and dedication. Horse racing.

This sport isn’t new. Americans didn’t invent it. In one form or another, societies have been enjoying horse racing for thousands of years. The Romans participated in chariot races. Norse mythology tells an epic tale of racing. Societies across the world and throughout history have embraced horse racing as an integral part of their culture.

Americans adopted it before they adopted the Constitution. The first race track was built on Long Island in 1665. Saratoga Race Course was opened in 1863. By 1890 there were over 300 tracks in the United States.

What has been missing from all of this? The apparel. There is no one walking around with a Rachel Alexandra ball cap. No horse racing t shirts. No Seabiscuit hoods.

Is it because the fans don’t care? Are they not passionate? If you’ve ever been to the race track this question would not even come to mind. Horse racing fans are some of the most passionate sports fans in the world. They live and breathe the race.

Time to show the world how they live and breathe horse racing. Time to proudly show off their culture and their sport.
