Most American celebrations of the 18th and 19th centuries were centered about the agrarian cycle of planting and harvesting. Autumn, the harvest season, was the time for gathering of people to assist with the harvesting of crops and the trading of exchange of surplus production for commodities. The labor intensive field work of spring and summer was over for the year, supply of food was plentiful and some leisure time was available. Preparations for the bleak solitary winter months lay ahead and people were anxious to have the last of the year's social interaction before roads became impassible and weather turned too dangerous to venture far from their homes.

"Racing was in autumn, after the close of the harvesting and the gathering (for the race) was not only a gala for the gentlemen sportsmen, but was a social great attraction for the ladies who accompanied them to enjoy the balls and social festivities of the occasion..." Ester Whitley Burch
