Samuel Huttenbauer's love of horses began at an early age in his native Cincinnati, Ohio. As a young man he rode hunters, saddle horses and played polo. He got into harness racing in the 1950s, both as a breeder and an owner. His stable produced outstanding performers such as Flower Child, Lang Hanover, Prince Victor, Wonder Child and Little Brown Jug winner Best of All. Huttenbauer enjoyed jogging and training his own stock and drove in amateur races past the age of eighty. The president of the family meat packing firm founded in the 1880s, Samuel Huttenbauer died in 1987, a few months short of his 100th birthday.
