Track and Stable Gossip -- Kennebec Journal -- May 8, 1895

P.H. Reed of Fort Fairfield traded Queen Nelson to
C.H. Nelson of Waterville for Reed Wilkes.

P.H. Reed, originally from Madison, Maine
Reed's sense of adventure led him to Aroostook County.

E.L. Houghton's two-months-old colt by Reed Wilkes, trial 2.16 1/2, dam Jenny, is a beauty. Reed Wilkes, it will be remembered is a son of Red Wilkes, the greatest son of George Wilkes, and is the property of P.H. Reed of Fort Fairfield. Jenny is by Old Abe, trial 2.22 in "old times," by Flying Morgan, by Old Drew, and is the dam of Fearless. "Favorite Fearless: who has enjoyed a popularity in that section greater than that of almost any other horse, and who has proved himself an excellent stock horse. More than this, she is the dam of Queen, 2/19 3/4, by Nelson, 2.09. Queen is now owned by C.H. Nelson, owner of the great Nelson, and may be watched for a low mark this summer. Queen was bred by P.H. Reed, and was formerly known as Queen Nelson. Mr. Reed exchanged her more than a year ago with Mr. Nelson for Reed Wilkes.
