If one thinks of Roman times he will remember horsedrawn chariots racing at breakneck speed. In modern times, however, harness racing has been a newcomer, attain­ing popularity in the 1800s and reaching its present peak in the United States between 1940 and 1960. Thoroughbred racing replaced harness racing in the late 1800s and early 1900s as the most popular horse racing sport and still is con­sidered by many to be more exciting and interesting than harness racing.However, the advent of night harness racing, such as is held in most of the United States, has skyrocketed this sport into popularity as an evenings entertainment. Some of the harness racing plants are as beautiful as any sports arenas in the United States- the sheer architectural beauty of Yonkers, Roosevelt and Monticello Raceways has brought out many curious and has added millions of ardent fans in recent years.
