The Colorful History of Thoroughbred Racing
Man o’ War, Secretariat, Arcaro, and the Jones Boys are all heroes of the turf and names that evoke the clang of the starting gate and the thunder of pounding hooves. A visit to the Museum is filled with the sights and sounds of racing.
As one of America’s oldest sports, Thoroughbred Racing has a long and rich history. To tell the story of the sport, the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame relies on a renowned equine art collection, stunning trophies, beautiful silks, and Thoroughbred memorabilia.
While a walking tour captures the flavor of our permanent exhibits, no visit is complete without a trip to the Peter McBean Special Exhibition Gallery. The gallery features unique and exciting collections that are rarely available to the public.
