Alfred Z. Solomon Sesquicentennial Exhibit
Alfred Z. Solomon Sesquicentennial Exhibit: Celebrating 150 years of racing in Saratoga, Peter McBean Gallery. On display from June 25, 2013 to December 7, 2014.
Since 1863, Saratoga Springs has been the home of first-class Thoroughbred racing. Legends have been made, and racing favorites have been humbled by defeat. At the start, John Morrissey's organized race meets and the golden age of racing ushered in by Man o' War and other Hall of Famers set the place for the first 100 years. The modern era began with the formation of the New York Racing Association and continued with the legends and rivalries that have developed in recent history. This illustrated timeline encourages racing fans, both old and new, to explore Saratoga's racing past and reminisce about their own memories at the Spa.
