Score Card [harness and flat racing]. Geneva Pre-Emption Park, NY.

Score Card [harness and flat racing]

No stated place [Geneva, NY?]: No stated publisher, N.d. [1890s]. First edition. Unbound card. One card, ca. 5 ½ x 7 inches. Pencil notes on both sides, though not full race results. Creased, worn, edge tears. No loss. Fair. Item #30183

Lists 2 trotting races and 1 running race, each with a few local entries. The other side has ads for Geneva businesses--Slocum dry goods, Haight watches and jewelry, and Hallenbeck groceries. No date, but one horse (Billy Burr Blue) is listed as a 2:30 trotter in Wallace’s Year Book for 1896. A celebration is announced for Monday, July 5. Pre-Emption Park was also the site of the Union Fair. Not pretty, but how many relics of racing at Pre-Emption Park are out there? Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.

Price: $25.00
