This is a great blog. My grandfather, Harold C. Ralph raced in standard bred races. He was a top driver/owner at some point in his career. My dad, Ronald Ralph, owned a horse, Indianapolis, who beat Greyhound's record and held the record for a short period of time. Dad has a ton of memorabilia from the old days. I have a pic of my grandfather Harold being presented a huge trophy in 1956 and I have another large trophy won by my grandfather in 1958 at Bay State Raceway. If you would like to contact my dad, Ron Ralph, you can call him at 207-832-5545.
I remember Harold Ralph from Lewiston Raceway in the late 60's...I worked for James Lee McKenny and those where fun times when everyone at the track where like family. Joan Welch Wilfong
