The Sport of Kings in Queens
Exhibition Presented by the Queens Historical Society
Queens has been a major center of thoroughbred horse racing since 1667 when King Charles II of England established the first race course in his North American Possessions.

This exhibition details the history of this amazing sport in Queens from those early days, 350 years ago to the present, and its concomitant cultural, social and economic dimensions and impact. It relates stories of the sport’s legends-horses, jockeys, trainers, and iconic races.
