The new Roosevelt Raceway website has been launched and it can be viewed at www.rrtrotting.com The site has many photos, videos and several newspaper articles about drivers and races from the Roosevelt Raceway glory days.
Everyone who visits the website should read the newspaper articles, especially “Six for Cruise” and a “Perfect Night for Haughton” both located on the Hall of Fame page. Also the article “RR 1960” on the About page is an excellent story about the history of Roosevelt Raceway and it's founder George Morton Levy.
The website is a work in progress and the released version consists of seven pages including a Hall of Fame, Videos, International Trot, and a Then & Now page. In the near future the current pages will be expanded on and other pages will be added, including an American Trotting Championship, Messenger Stake, Gallery, and Event pages.
The websites theme is “Promoting the Past to Promote the Future”.
There is also a link on the website that takes you to a Amazon page that is dedicated to mostly harness racing books. The website was designed and developed by Roosevelt Raceway co-author Freddie Hudson with assistance from Mike Lizzi, Trade Martin, Ray Cotolo and Roosevelt Raceway book co-author Billy Haughton.
