Bay Meadows has led a long and colorful history. The great Seabiscuit was a two-time winner of the Bay Meadows Handicap, which has been run continually since 1937. Pari-mutuel wagering was also introduced to North America at the track and it was the first track to use the tote board, all-enclosed starting gate, and photo-finish camera.
