The daughter of Patronage and Atlanta, Alix was owned by Daniel Hayes of Muscatine, Iowa, and born in 1888. Affectionately referred to as "Sweet Little Alix," the career of this "Queen of the Turf" included her holding the world's trotting championship for six years (1894-1900), established at C. W. Williams new "dead-level" track at Galesburg, Illinois. However, the mare's nine-heat victory in the $15,000 Free-For-All at Chicago's Washington Park in 1893 was her most memorable race. From that day Alix became dear to "every lover of fair play," as well as a great performer. She had two foals and died in October 1901 at age 13.
