Black and white photograph of gray gelding, Greyhound wearing saddle number four, Sep Palin up for the Pine Tree Trot on Thursday, July 30, 1936 at the Kite Track, Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Still widely considered to be the greatest trotting horse in American harness racing history, Greyhound set a total of 14 world records during his 14 year career from 1934-1940, including the 1:55 1/4 record for a gelding trotter which stood for 32 years. On July 30, 1936, Grayhound established a new Kite Track record of 2.01 in a head-to-head competition with champion mare, Tara. The photograph is signed in the lower right corner by Guy Kendall, photographer.
