saul a. camp
Born in Gaffney, South Carolina in 1891, "Sol" Camp went west in 1923 to help on his brother's cattle ranch. He settled in Shafter, California, where eventually he became the "potato king" of the United States. His farm measured 8,000 acres in cotton, 5,000 acres in potatoes and additional acreage in other crops and ranchland. Camp loved the trotters and became interested in racing, mostly in the west. There he built up a championship stable and breeding farm, paying high prices for his stock. He won the Hambletonian in 1955 with Scott Frost. A true sportsman to the end, "Sol" Camp died during surgery for a brain tumor in 1957.
