: What was the Ingleside Track in San Francisco? ...

It was a racing track. According to the Western Neighborhoods Project website <http://www.outsidelands.org/ingleside-racetrack.php>:

"On November 28, 1895, Corrigan, and his partners (formed as the Pacific Jockey Club) opened the Ingleside Racetrack, just off the Ocean Road (now Ocean Avenue.)"

It was used for horse and auto racing, and possibly aviation.

It was mostly leveled in 1912. <http://www.sfgenealogy.com/boards/sfhistory/messages/1121.html>
