harry k. devereux
Born in 1869 in Cleveland, Ohio, H. K. Devereux as a youth was an excellent athlete and later grew to love driving trotters, with his horses stabled at Glenview Track in Cleveland. Around 1900 he formed a syndicate, the Pastime Stable, which owned and raced Lee Axworthy, Volga and others around the Grand Circuit. Investors in Pastime Stable originated the Cleveland Driving Club and this was the start of organized matinee racing. For years Devereux was president of the Grand Circuit and managed the North Randall race meetings. He died in Cleveland in June 1932.
