A view of the racetrack from the gamblers' perspective. Horse racing is America's number one spectator sport. In 1982, more than 77 million people wagered almost $12 billion at the nation's racetracks. An insider's look at the "sport of kings," focusing on tracks at Belmont in New York, where the rich indulge their interest in racing, and at Great Barrington in Massachusetts, where infirm horses run for purses that can barely pay the feed bill.
