ARTIFACT: This is a gorgeous 1910s or 1920s member badge for the Havana-American Jockey Club. Created in 1915, Oriental Park at Marianao (in Havana) was the first racetrack in Cuba and the site for the club's events. Americans thoroughbred owners brought their horses to the island to race and anyone who was anybody went to watch: even ladies were permitted to attend Wednesday afternoon races starting in 1920. The badge is in sterling silver and was made by Dieges & Clust. It has an enameled Cuban and American flags flanking a racing jockey in relief at center. The poster shown is not included and is a Kerne Erickson work. Please see our other Cuban jockey club badges (for information click the links at the bottom of this page).
