Pine Tree Trot
Sepia tone photograph of Sep Palin driving the gray gelding, Greyhound, wearing saddle number four, at the Kite Track at Old Orchard Beach, Maine, Thursday, July 30, 1936. During the first heat of the Pine Tree Trot for Horses with Records Faster than 2.04, Greyhound set a new track record of 2.01. During his career from 1934-1940, Greyhound 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. As the horse aged, his coat turned from gray to nearly white, accounting for the champion to appear much lighter in color in later images.
