ON PRESIDENTS’ DAY 2022, READ ABOUT U. S. PRESIDENTS AND HORSE RACING

February 21st is the day in 2022 set aside in the United States to honor the nation’s presidents with a national holiday observance. Some of the American presidents, particularly those who served in the early days of the republic, were actively involved with horse racing. At least nine presidents from more modern times (Truman, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan. both Bushes, Clinton, and Trump) attended premier American racing events, as future, current, or past residents of the White House.
