Abstract

Official score card for the second day of the September 1933 Cumberland Farmers' Club Fair Races, dedicated that year to "Frank P. Fox, the Grand Old Man of Turf." At the time of his death two years later, on March 10, 1935, Fox was 82-years-old. In his obituary, The New York Times reported Fox was the oldest harness racing driver in the United States. He drove his first race at the age of 14, navigating an "old-time, high-wheel sulky." Fox drove for 65 years and 1933 marked his final year of competition.
