Blytheville Courier News (Newspaper) - August 24, 1936, Blytheville, Arkansas Page six Blytheville Ark courier news monday August 24, 1936 re us from society Long favorite of Corn Relt buggy r leers gain new favor. Appear Here till soft Ball champs t harness racism. Long tile prime sport of the Corn Belt has gone society. During those depression decades in. The sport when the automobile and the parimutuel seemed certain to shunt it into limbo the county fair. It Elf struggling for existence supported the sulky. It was something like two aging cripples helping each other Down the Road. It is True that a number of millionaires still stuck by the grand circuit and paid the Bill at the Breeding far # such men a a the elder Wright of Calumet farms. John l. Dodge tile Reynolds of tobacco lame the Harl inures and one or two others kept tile sport from dying entirely. Hut most of the wealthy were being drawn to the runner., and no one can deny that dark Day. Were noon the Trotters. But the harness sport has weathered tile storm badly battered of course but still game. I and despite the howls one still hears there Are Rich people who find that they still can afford expensive hobbles. The Young Rich Are turning to the Trotters at least As rapidly a. They Are going into the running horse game. Late conscription into Ute latter Are a. C. Bostwick who owned mate his brother Pete world famous Amateur rider Alfred g Wynne Vanderbilt owner of discovery and f. M. Alger. Or. Owner of smear. But the harness so i t can boast of Billy past Dunbar Bostwick brother of a c. And Pete and Elbridge Gerry. All three Are noted Polo players and All three Are attracted to the sport by the thrill of driving their own horses. A a no weight problem in sulky Dunbar Bostwick is considered by Many to be a better rider than his More famous brother and both play a fast game of Polo. But even Amateur jockeys have to face the weight bogey with its threat of loss of health because of strenuous reducing Mel adds. Sulky Drivers need have Little worry on that score and therein lies the attraction of tile sport. There is another potent society Debs can indulge in i the sport As Well As can their husky escorts. They can do so with a minimum of risk of changing soft curves into mannish Muscles. Not that the sport does t require strength but it will hardly Masculin ize the girls As much a it Tennis or High hurdling. Moreover women already have proved their ability to handle the unnatural gaiters. Mrs k Roland i Harriman recently made two i world records. She drove the two-1 year old Farr to a record for women Drivers and then gee Geed last year s Champion greyhound to a record of 2.01 s for a mile. A previous record was made behind her husband s Highland Scott a pacer which she drove to a record of 1 5�l. That gives her the feminine records for Bot ii Trotters and pacers. A a its a family sport the e Roland hanuman and the Young Dick Reynolds offer a Rase in Point. Both Young couples Are exceptionally fond of the sport and in each Case husband and Wrife Are extremely proficient at driving. Running racing has no parallel although mrs. A v. Whitney is a skillful jockey. And the key to the answer lies 1 there. Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney always can own and race horses and a. C. Bostwick always can own Breed and train them but weight will confine their Riding ability to the Polo Field. Harney racing will give them the ultimate in sports thrill just As it did in the Days of the Matt Rue circuits. To a warn re a a. _ horned owl is pet North Haven Conn. Up a i g.
