Proximity was one of the greatest free-for-allers in trotting history, earning over a quarter-million dollars for Ralph and Gordon Verhurst of Rochester, New York. When she retired in 1950, the daughter of Protector-Agnes Worthy was the leading money-winning Standardbred, regardless of sex or gait. Proximity died at Castleton Farm at the age of twenty-four in 1966, the dam of five in 2:10 or better.
