The present study took place during the spring and summer of 1971 at a thoroughbred horse racing track in a Midwestern city. The racing meet lasted for nine weeks, from late April to early July. Although I have drawn from other sources which are not directly connected to this particular racing meet, the bulk of the information included in this account comes direc tly from my experiences as a participant observer at this particular racing meet. For purposes of clarity I have named this track YA-WET-AG.
