William H. Cane brought back

Bill Cone's buggies were sul

Y f"l ii,

time at Good

A dozen years
ago sulky rac

horse was con
sidered as passe

shoes. Yet, In
the midst of a
fast, highly
mechanized age,
in Ihe summer
following the Wnll Street crash
of 1929, Cane reincarnated nn
outmoded sport.
The Hambletonlan slake was
rnced for Ihe first time at the
New York Slate fair al Syra
cuse In 1020. II. was worth
$73,451. The co-nttractlon boost
ed attendance.
Tho first renewal was raced at
Lexington the next fall. The
crowd was disappointing. II
flopped at Syracuse In 102H and
al Lexington In '29. That was
Iho year Bill Cnnn won tho rnco
with Walter Denr driven by his
friend and trainer, Waller R.
Cox, who died Inst December,
Cane had driven trotters for
years as' a prominent amateur
rolnsman, He hod Ihe distinction
of building Ihe arena at Boyle's
Thirty Acres In record time (or
the Dcmpsey-Cnrpentler fight.
Ho was a man of enterprise, and
the poor attendance at trotllng's
blue-ribbon event was a chal
lenge to him.
So the 1030 running of the
Hnmblatonlan was held at Cano's
Good Time Park al Goshen. II.
has never been rnced anywhere

be promoted and publicized. Ob
stacles were plentiful. Public re
sistance had to be broken down
for acceptance of an allegedly
slow, hick sport In a racy era
which paid h premium on speed.
The grnndsland had to be built
facing west into the setting sun,
for, try as he did, Bill Cane
couldn't buy a strip of land on
tho west which would hnvo been
the slle of stands faring east.
Refusal of the owners to soli
this hind meant Hint a trlangulnr
track had lo be hild out to fit
purchasable space. Horses in
the back stretch had lo race away
from the grandstand and into a
far corner of tho course before
turning lo come back alongside
highway 17 and finally turning
again to enter Ihe home stretch.
Yet, despite these discouraging
barriers and with Intorest at a
low ebb, Cane built up the Ham
bletonlan slake lo a unique posi
tion in sports circles.
Like Epsom Downs and Louis-
villa, population In this town of
some 4500 swells nearly eight or
nine times during the Hnmble-
tonlnn hegira. Country cousins
rub elbows with city slickers,
Iho thermometer scrapes 90 and
yet, despite the town's relative
inaccessibility, the mon Keeps
Cane's faith In trotting has
been a boon to the sport. The
Hambletonlan gives it a peg, just
as the Derby, Preakness a,nd Ar
lington Classic boost the thor
oughbred runners.
Rationing and travel restric
tions may cut down attendance
tills year, but everyone from Jov
ial Mayor Walter Brown to the
lowest stable boy, believes that
thousands will make the trip,
even if they have to buy a sulky
and a nag to get here.
There are 40 entries in this
year's race. Nine to 12 will start,
Colbv Hanover, owned by C.
W. Phellis, New York, and I. W.
Glcason, Willlnmsport, Pa., is the
favorite, although he has not
started this year.
Pay Up, bay colt by Follow
up, won Ills lusi mice Bimis .it
1041 nnd copped the Matron
Stake, leading preview to the
race, this year. The colt is owned
bv R. H. Johnston of Charlotte,
N. C who had Bill Gallon, last
year's winner.
Other contenders are Cannon
Ball, The Ambassador, Capitol
Hanover, Dot Chappell, and
Sophie Hanover.
In these tire-less, gas-less days,
the 17th Hambletonlan stake
may ba more than a trotting race,
It. may help you handle your
streamlined, 1944 sulky.
. The uoorest gambler we know
of is Ihe fellow who is afraid to
lake a chance on himself.
The boxers In the ring are al
ways the principals but it's the
referee who counts.
