An article in the August 15, 1938 Lewiston Daily Sun describes Alloway as, "Stan Wathen's famous come-back horse...holder of the Maine and New Hampshire trotting records over a half-mile track... Alloway, considered a cast-off, was purchased at the Old Glory sale for $95, placed in training by Stan's son, Wendell, and the following year won 19 out of 21 starts and is considered onr of the best half-mile track trotters in training" (pg 7).
