    About Pleasanton Racetrack


    Other horse racing tracks claim to be the oldest in the United States, but Pleasanton Fairgrounds Racetrack in California may have the strongest case. This track was built in 1858 by Don Refugio Bernal and his family, who were Spanish settlers in the San Francisco Bay Area. The New Orleans Fair Grounds is the oldest site still in operation, dating back to 1852, but the Pleasanton course itself is the oldest one-mile track in America.


    Racing for both thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses is held at Pleasanton during the annual Alameda County Fair, attracting around 40,000 horse lovers every summer. The modern version of the Fair began in 1912 and was the brainchild of Rodney G. MacKenzie, who bought the Pleasanton track in 1911 and spent over $250,000 building a grandstand and stables – that’s about $6 million in 2012 dollars.


    Pleasanton became a popular destination for horses from the East Coast who wanted to train during the winter. The 1922 Kentucky Derby winner Morvich trained here before becoming the first California-bred horse to win the Run for the Roses. Seabiscuit also trained here during the sport’s heyday after pari-mutuel betting was legalized in 1933.


    Alameda County eventually took over operations in 1939-40 and created the Alameda County Agricultural Fair and Horse Show. The 2012 racing calendar at Pleasanton included seven non- graded stakes races; six offered a purse of $50,000 plus another $15,000 for California-bred horses. The richest prize was at the $75,000 Sam J. Whiting Memorial Handicap (six furlongs, dirt, 3-year-olds and up), which marked its 50th running in 2012.
