    A day at San Lazaro Race Track

    These photos were taken at San Lazaro Racetrack in Carmona, Cavite, Philippines.

    I had the opportunity to shoot in areas of the race track few outsiders get to see and fewer photographers have access too.

    Finally somebody created a thread regarding horse racing. I was a racing afficionado when I was still a student. But I'm not that active right now for the past 8 years. May I know who is the jockey of the year last year and who won the Presidential Gold Cup?

    No idea jazzper. First time at the race track.

    Horse racing is an equestrian sport that has a long history. Archaeological records indicate that horse racing occurred in ancient Babylon, Syria, and Egypt. Both chariot and mounted horse racing were events in the ancient Greek Olympics by 648 BC. In the Roman Empire, chariot and mounted horse racing were major industries. Thoroughbred racing was popular with the aristocrats and royalty of British society, earning it the title "Sport of Kings."

    ***The Manila Jockey Club was founded in 1867 by the Spanish Governor-General to conduct horse races in the country. The Club started out with 100 exclusive members known as “socio fundadores,” members of affluent families in the country who still dominate the Filipino market today: Ayala, Zobel, Prieto, Tuason, and Elizalde, among others. These sportsmen conducted recreational races for the enjoyment of the social elite. During the American government in 1903, betting was introduced. By 1912, the San Lazaro racetrack and grandstand were built in Sta. Cruz, Manila on a 16 hectare property. MJC was formally incorporated as a business entity in 1937. In the 1950s, the Club was publicly listed with the Manila Stock Exchange. Additionally, thirty five off-track betting stations were set up and racing was broadcasted on TV. Through the leadership of Atty. Alfonso Reyno Jr, a group of investors acquired the controlling interest of MJC from the Prieto family in 1995. By 2003, a world class racing facility was constructed by MJC on a 77 hectare property in Carmona, Cavite.
