Balmoral Park History
In 1925, Colonel Matt J. Winn, manager of Churchill Downs, talked to business associates of the Kentucky Jockey Club, who agreed to buy 1050 acres of land just south of Crete for building a new track named Lincoln Fields. The inaugural meeting at Lincoln Fields began on August 9, 1926 where the first thoroughbred horseman turned trainer Daniel E. Stewart clinched the winning title. He virtually became the trainer for Senator Johnson Camden and president of the Kentucky Jockey Club.
