2. Horse racing was the most popular sport

In America in the 1960s. Obviously a lot of other gambling outlets came along. But I think too we've just lost touch with these wonderful animals who used to play a central part in our lives.
The first horse race I ever went to was a Belmont Stakes race in the mid 1980s. I've never heard anything like the roar of the crowd when the horses broke from the gate. I've been to a lot of races since.
The racing game has its problems, but for thousands of years horses have loved to run against each other. It's a beautiful sport.
