The Bahr starting gate was the first to keep each horse in a separate
stall. Bahr starting stalls were first used at Hawthorne in Chicago,
in 1928-29.

"....starting stalls were introduced on a regular basis at Hawthorne,
in Chicago, in 1929, and spread rapidly..."

Also see:

"starting stalls were introduced "

I hope this helps.
