"Like it or not, horse racing is part of the American character. It predates baseball and is the only sport that was ever conducted out of the White House. In the early 1800s, President Andrew Jackson ran a stable from there.

It is on the decline mostly because of its own doing. Horse racing lacks uniform drug regulation and meaningful penalties for cheaters. The racetracks themselves treat their customers badly."


Quoted from this NY Times story: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/08/sport ... d=31418693
