excerpt from Aug 1962 Hoof Beats and "Raceway Roundup":

At Baystate Raceway: New England harness fans saw the fastest mile of the year in Yankeeland on just the second night of the 15th season at Bay State Raceway, Foxboro, Mass. when Stanley Dancer brought Sweet Singer to town for a sparkling, 2:013/5 trip in the $6,000 E. M. Loew Pace.
Franklin Safford came back to the New England scene with a flurry of winners that included a driving triple on June 26. One of the victories was a 2:123/5 two year old mile by Knight Maplecroft, one of Neil C. Raymond's good colts from Queen's Knight at nearby by Maplecroft Farm in Ipswich, Mass.

Just three nights later, Alf (Bucky) Day of Danville, N.H., who is now close to his 400th lifetime dash win over the Bay State course, also delivered a triple.
Andy Foster of Del Mar, Calif. went to the hospital after a spill just after the Bay State meeting opening with a bone fracture in his foot, but Foster was back in the sulky within a week with his foot in a cast. "It was the first time in 30 years of driving that an injury has kept me out of action, and if I can do as well in the next 30 years I'll have no complaints," Foster remarks with a grin.

Winners in the first 10 days at Bay State included many New England favorites. J. Alden Young scored with Lee Sota for Carl Weigert's Windhaven Stable at Worchester, Mass. and also came home in front twice with Frances Gallon, his consistent trotting mare, this one for Nova Scotian owners. Veteran George (Chris) O'Donnell of Foxboro saw his sharply trained Bay State Biddie score in 2:061/5 with Harry Coleman at the reins; Stan (Bing) Parker brought out Perk Rodney, a trotting gelding, for Archie Coyle of Weymouth for a clever win; Paul Battis of Danville, N.H. clicked with frequent winners, the young Frank Reinhardt from nearby Sharon, Mass. took up the training driving duties for Joseph Dias of Sun Garden Ranch, DeLeon Springs, Fla. One of his early wins was with Dias' hero of many miles, Blackstone Widower. And a happy note, Harry Hiltz, 74-years young, scored twice with Honey Royal.

excerpt from March 1949 Hoof Beats and "Eastern Trainers":

H. F. (Ace) Loud is training John Amour, an aged trotter, purchased last fall from the estate of W. J. McDonald of Boston.

Also at South Weymouth, Harry Hiltz of Braintree, Mass., is working three horses, Calumet Anne, Ruth Bumpus and Honey Royal, the latter a 2-year-old.
