william k. dickerson
"Billy Dick" was born in 1872 in Versailles, Indiana. As a young man he moved to Goshen, New York where he had a public stable, and leased Joe Patchen, to make him a famous sire of that era. Dickerson soon was engaged by the Harriman family to train their stable and remained with them until his retirement in 1946. Some of his successful campaigners were Titan Hanover, Guy Ozark, Guy Trogan, Highland Scott, Peter Maltby and Anna Bradford's Girl. William Dickerson died in Goshen on May 19, 1948.
