...a nice walk down memory Lane.'   Just a year before the old place burned down.   8 of the names on your list were guests on my old (now ancient) Harness Happenings Radio program, including the first driver guest I ever had on the air - Stanley Banks.  It was always great driving up or down Halted Street seeing those weeping willow trees that seemed to go on forever....and of course at night, the sky would always be lit up with the lights of Washington Park.   When not using the Stable Gate, dear old dad and I would enter through that back gate on the far west side of their property out in what seemed to be no-mans-land.  I think it was on Ashland.   Some old guy used to man the gate and collect the 50 cent parking fee - anyone remember that?

I was just a kid when my Father was racing Deanna Darnley over there, I think he may have even raced What a Bargain at Washington also.
I think the first time he took me there we got in the barn and two trainers got into a fight over one of their wives(messing around) It was the first time I saw my dad get physical separating them, He was really pissed that they got into a fight in front of me!
Thats the part they cant take away is the memories!

When I knew Bob Wagoner he was an old man and past his training and driving days. Thats cool as hell, to see the history of the sport. What I would like to see is a museum of the history in Illinois harness racing.

A great place would be the barn that houses Greyhounds stall in St. Charles. It will never happen but would be awesome.

Old Doc Flannerys Farm. I actually got to see greyhound before he died back then he had to be fed bran he had no teeth, but it was cool to see him.

...A Harness Racing Museum/Hall of Fame in Illinois.    That's a  great idea.   To be unbiased and totally fair it would need to present the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly...all aspects.   The Harness Racing Museum in Goshen, NY is really something special for those that haven't been there to see it.   It could serve as a good model for an Illinois facility.   Great things start with an idea, a spark, the planting of a seed.    I prefer to think it could happen - and for gosh sakes I don't even live in Illinois anymore.  So, Honest 1, you've planted the seed, now we need to water it and fertilize the notion.   I have to think there are enough great minds right here in the world of BTW to get the ball rolling.

To get Greyhounds stall you better act fast. My family visited a couple years ago and the people that rented the place said the owner was thinking of selling to developers. Shoot it may already be gone. I really hope not though.

               idiot why dont you tell these posters not to bring up the past , and that the game has passed them by ? they have good memories of racing and are still involved . unlike you a moron who has never did anything to have a good memory about except your cute pictures ! you dont get it idiot , the only reason anyone ever looks at your post's is to see pictures and when they dont see pictures your thread evaporates without many responses except your own ! please wake up your an idiot and dont belong on a good thread !THE FEROCIOUS REMARK IS OLD NOW THAT YOU TOOK OUT OF CONTEXT
