The fourm will butcher the tab settings Sad
From the July 16, 1952 Harness Horse.
This was printed on a page a few pages ahead of the Sportsman's Park summary. Had to go into this issue (about a week away from itnerary) for something else.

Leading Drivers at Sportsman's Park
The drivers' competition at Sportsman's Park this season is particularly keen. After the first two weeks, or 12 racing programs at this meeting, Edgar Leonard, veteran driver and trainer for the H. R. Warren and Sons stable, of Moline, Ill., is the foremost reinsman.

Clarence Curtis, who drove Tempered Volo to victory in the Inaugural Stake, was in second place, not too far back but that any single good, night would put him right up with the early pacemakers.
The drivers' standings, the leading 10, after the first 12 nights of the 42­night race meeting follow:

      STS.   W.   P.   S.
1. Edgar Leonard    19   9   2   2
2. Clarence Curtis    18   6   2   1
3. Dee Stover     40   4   10   3
4. Robert Wagner    30   4   5   0
5. Wilbur Long    12   4   2   0
6. "Red" Ross    17   4   1   0
7. Glen Campbell    13   4   1   0
8. C. F. Rumley    18   3   4   3
9. C. J. "Chuck" Rumley    30   3   3   6­
10. Russ Britenfield    9   3   3   1

Glen Campbell
Was this before or after his singing career?
Maybe before "I am a lineman for the county"
Do you suppose he  sang" Rhinestone Cowboy" in the post parade?

I am just an old "Hoss" trainer, that has been raced hard and put away wet. 
As my Friend from Maine(Ora Stratton) says "There are horse trainers, and then there are real "Hoss" trainers.

 It was before that gal broke his heart and he left for Phoenix to drive in the Sportsman's Park located in that city Wink

looking,
          I've just five images with Glen Campbell, all of which are poor quality.
 This one from Sportsman's Park and 1949. (check your email)
