Uhlan, Earl, Jr. and Colorado E -- Contributions to the Lost Trotting Parks Heritage Center

At the Oxford Fair, Wilbur Hammond contributed eight photographs to the newly formed non-profit, The Lost Trotting Parks Heritage Center. Here are two of the three larger photos that measured 20" by 23". Right now the originals are being cleaned and new non-reflective glass purchased to preserve the images. It was wonderful to have Wilbur entrust the images of these great horses and their drivers to the Center.

Earl, Jr. was a pacer of great pacer who was bred in Illinois. In Maine, Earl, Jr. set track records in Augusta, Bangor, Lewiston, Waterville, Presque Isle, and Houlton. He was purchased in 1921 by Henry Feindel of Farmington. His best time was 2.01 1/4. During his best performances Earl, Jr. was driven by Walter Cox. Earl, Jr.'s Maine track records were set in 1913. His times ranged between 2.06 3.4 and 2.10 1/2.
