History

When Leland Stanford Sr. arrived in California in the mid-19th century, his first observation of the beautiful, sweeping landscape was a statement to his wife.

"Jane," Leland Sr. said, "I really am of the opinion that that hill you see over yonder would make a fine racecourse."

And hence began the Annual Stanford Dish Race. Course records are below:
