Home of the “Grey Ghost” Coming to Goshen
Goshen, NY - When the great grey trotter, Greyhound, won the 1935 Hambletonian at Goshen, New York’s Good Time Park, America was emerging from the Great Depression. As he walked into his retirement home, a stall at the Maple Park, Illinois farm of his trainer, Doc Flanery, in 1940, the world was on the brink of a great world war, with a wave of social and cultural changes to follow.
