    Thanks for a great story!

    Maud S.’s “grandfather” was the famous “Hambletonian”, the horse that’s responsible for most, if not all, of the today’s Standardbred horses, and the horse for which the Hambletonian Stakes harness race is named. Her father was “Harold”, which give a whole new meaning to “Harold and Maud”.

    The next time you’re in Goshen (Orange County), NY, check out the Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame:
