|ABR Launches Second Video of Four-Part Series Promoting the 350th Anniversary of Horse Racing|
America’s Best Racing (ABR), a multi-media fan development and awareness-building platform created and funded by The Jockey Club, today released the second video of a four-part series of digital video ads filmed and produced by ABR Films at historic Keeneland (Lexington, Ky.) celebrating the 350th anniversary of the birth of horse racing in America.

In 1665, the construction of the Newmarket course in Salisbury, N.Y., a section of what is now known as the Hempstead Plains of Long Island, N.Y., was established. The rest, as they say, is history. America’s history.
The digital video campaign will use the hashtag, #Celebrating350.
