The Gravesend, Brooklyn Handicap 1904 [07:21]
The Brooklyn Handicap in Gravesend, Coney Island, Brooklyn, May 26, 1904 American Biograph & Mutoscope Co. Camera: GW "Billy" Bitzer Coney Island's Gravesend Race Track opened in 1887 and remained in operation until 1910. The first 'Handicap' was a 1 1/4 miles left-handed race on dirt and became part of the 'Handicap Triple' which today is preceded by the Metropolitan Handicap and followed by the Suburban Handicap. The Brooklyn Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually in early June at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York, on Long Island. It currently is a Grade II event open to three-year-olds and up willing to race one and one-half miles on dirt. The first segment of this film begins with the horses and their entourages entering the track and getting organized. The handicap seen here begins at 4:00 viewed in five edits, each view is from a stationary camera with virtually no panning. The racing segment itself lasts two minutes with the last minute of film focused on The Picket in what I presume is the winners circle. The Picket was ridden by Jockey Oscar Helgesen who took the prize in 2:06.60. The Picket was trained by Carroll B. Reid and owned by Waldeck Stable. Four horses have won the Handicap Triple: Whisk Broom II (1913), Tom Fool (1953), Kelso (1961), Fit to Fight (1984). 01/05/12 - 3

Sheepshead Bay Race Track was an American thoroughbred horse racing facility built on the site of the Coney Island Jockey Club at Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. Old railroad track diagrams for the Long Island Railroad spur that served both the club and the racetrack show the entrance to the club was located on the east side of Ocean Avenue between Avenues X and Y. The racetrack was built by a group of prominent businessmen from the New York City area who formed the Coney Island Jockey Club in 1880. Led by Leonard Jerome and the track's President, William Kissam Vanderbilt, the Club held seasonal race cards at nearby Prospect Park fairgrounds until construction of the new race course was completed in 1884. - excerpt from wikipedia Sheepshead Bay Neighborhood in southeastern Brooklyn, overlooking an ocean inlet of the same name to its south and bordered to the north by Marine Park, to the east by Shellbank Creek, to the south by Manhattan Beach, and to the west by Gravesend.
