Description

Sepia tone action photograph of Greyhound (2.00) driven by Sep Palin winning the sixth race of the Pine Tree Trot for Horses with Records Faster than 2.04, Thursday, July 30, 1936 at the Kite Track, Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Finishing in second was bay mare, Tara (2.00), Tom Berry driving. Miss Peter Belle (2.01 3/4), driven by C. Dean finished in third. Other horses in the field included LuBarient (2.03 1/4) finishing fourth; Raider (2.01 1/2) in fifth; and Calumet Durham (2.01 3/4) finishing in sixth place. Silver King (2.01 3/4) was pulled from the field due to injury. During Greyhound's career from 1934-1940, he set a total of 14 world records including the 1:55 1/4 record for a gelding trotter which stood for 32 years. Greyhound is still widely considered to be the greatest trotting horse to ever race in the United States.
