aubrey s. rodney
A native of Boston, Aubrey Rodney came from a long line of horsemen. His driving career began in the early 1900s, working for New Hampshire owner E. H. Best at a starting salary of $8 a month and room and board. After many years on the "circuit," Rodney settled at Saratoga Raceway in 1945 and won seventeen driving championships, his last one in 1961 at age 81! Rodney had a knack for taking a cast-off horse and making a winner out of him. "Rod" Rodney was 83 when he died at his home in Saratoga Springs.
