Horse Racing
Survey says:

Seabiscuit, 70.

Horse racing has had two good years in one, as a spectator sport complete with past and present feel-happy stories, and as a gamble as well.

Seabiscuit could win an Oscar or two.

Baby-boomers with all that time and money on their hands are naturals for the race track.

It is ironic to note that some of those who predicted the collapse of horse racing have lost those particular jobs.
