Annual Year Book Trotting and Pacing in 1945; Volume 58, Part 1, Duncan, Roger (Ed.)
15 Duncan, Roger (Ed.) Annual Year Book Trotting and Pacing in 1945; Volume 58, Part 1
Bellefontaine, Ohio The United States Trotting Association 1946 First Thus Hard Cover Very Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Original black pebble grain leatherette on boards. No writing or damage. As a native of the area of Bellefontaine, Ohio, I was curious as to its importance in connection with horse racing. I well remember watching races there during the Logan County Fair in the 1940's. I was pleased to learn that it was the original seat of the United Trotting Association, incorporated in 1932. In 1938 the word, "States", was added to the title, and in 1951 the head office was moved to Columbus. The title page lists Hartford, Conn. and Goshen, N.Y. as Executive Offices as well as Bellefontaine. Contains official race reports in U.S. and Canada, List of all horses starting in 1945, with record, sire, and age if under four years, starts, and winnings. 542 pp. Slightly musty. NOTE: We also have the next consecutive issue, listed separately.
