Presented here is August Belmont Jr.'s Aqueduct Racing License in mint condition. The all-original, quad-fold document has been autographed by August Belmont Jr., financier, major owner, and breeder of thoroughbred racehorses. It was he who purchased the land and built New York's hallowed Belmont Park racetrack that hosts the annual Belmont Stakes, which naturally took his name. This document grants license to the Queens County Jockey Club for running of the races, race meetings, steeplechases, and steeplechase meetings at Aqueduct Raceway located in Queens, New York. The Queens County Jockey Club opened Aqueduct just three years prior. This historic license is truly worthy of placement in the finest horseracing collection or in the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga, New York. Belmont Jr. autographed the document in bold, black fountain pen for excellent eye appeal.
