Jimmy Johnson Racing is the name given to the first American horse race of the 20th century.
The first race, held in 1912, was won by Jack Ripper and the horse won the Grand Prix of New York in 1911.
It was the start of a remarkable journey, with a record number of spectators in the city, including many famous American celebrities.
The race was held in New York’s Grand Central Station, the largest and most prestigious public transit hub in the US.
The first horse to win the race was an American Bulldog named John Johnson, which was the winner of the US title race in 1916.
In 1919, Jack Rippers horse, “The Tender,” won the US Grand Prix and took his place in the history books as the first ever American horse to cross the finish line of a race.
John Johnson Racing won the race in 1927, with Jack Ripping in third place and a record of six consecutive victories.
More than 60 years later, Jimmy Johnson Racing has won its last three races and is on its way to winning its fifth Grand Prix.
Jimmy Johnson will win the 2017 US Grand Champion’s Cup, which is the highest honour awarded to a winner of a world championship event.
A number of other notable horses in the race include Jack Rippin, the first-ever world champion in the saddle, and the famed Bulldog.
