Lincoln Downs racecourse was situated at Lincoln on Rhode Island and ran day and night meetings at the track since 1965.
  In 1974 the course staged a $5000 match between Denise Boudrot and Mike Lapensee, dubbed the 'Battle of the Sexes' in a time when female ridders were not the norm. In the end the female came out on top! To prove it was no fluke the match was repeated the next week but each riding the others horse, and still the lady repeated her win.
