Readers of this blog know I love the history of racing in the old days; in particular of tracks long gone. Well, today, nj.com is running a feature on the history of the State Animal of New Jersey (the horse). While it covers other forms of equine activity, trotting is well represented in this group of photos.
If interested in old racetracks, you may find this feature interesting as well. Go take a look if you like.
You still have a chance to win $2,500 in Harnesslink's Name the Foal contest. Time is running out.
