Summary expansion
This book recounts the history of thoroughbred racetrack architecture first by chronicling the dramatic shifts in the nature of racing environments over the lifetime of the sport, and then by profiling eight individual tracks in a series of international case studies, including Ascot (Ascot, England); Keeneland (Lexington, Kentucky); Saratoga (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.); and Santa Anita Park (Arcadia, Calif.)
