Greyhound's stall to Goshen Museum

The Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame in Goshen, NY will soon welcome a new exhibit that showcases the life and times of the great trotter Greyhound, who captured the 1935 Hambletonian at Goshen’s Good Time Park.

Greyhound, considered by many harness historians to be the finest trotter that ever lived, retired after scoring 14 world records, to the home of his former trainer Doc Flanery, in Maple Park, IL.

Flanery kept Greyhound in a specially designed stall on his farm until the trotter passed away at age 33 in 1965. The “Grey Ghost” as he was known, lived at that Prairie State farm for 25 years, in a plush 15’ x 30’ stall. This tongue and groove oak paneled stall with its Dutch door will now be reassembled and put on display at the Goshen Museum.

“We’re delighted for the opportunity to recreate Greyhound's stall and adjacent sitting room and to share them with visitors,” said Janet Terhune, the Museum’s director. “Greyhound is, without question, one of our greatest and best loved equine heroes. Considering Greyhound's association with Goshen, the Museum is the perfect site for this wonderful artifact of his life.

The Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame is located at 240 Main Street, Goshen, NY, and offers free admission, open 10am to 5 pm. For more information, visit www.harnessmuseum.com.
