Ellery Bicknell Crane. Historic homes and institutions and genealogical and personal memoirs of Worcester county, Massachusetts, with a history of Worcester society of antiquity (Volume 4)

John Eliot Thayer, sixth child of Nathaniel Thayer (7), was born in Boston, April. 3, 1862, and spent the larger part of his time on his father's farm at Lancaster, where he studied under private tutors until he entered college, graduating from Harvard in 1885. In 1891 he and his twin brother. Bayard, who were especially fond of do- mestic animals, established in Lancaster the Hill- side Kennels, which soon became well known, as their rare and choice imported breeds of stock won prizes at exhibitions all over the country. The love for fine horses and dogs is still prominent among the characteristics of Mr. Thayer. No man is better known in Massachusetts for his attractive and well stocked stables, and his interest in the turf than John E. Thayer. Colonel Thayer, as he is generally known, was president of the New England Trotting Horse Breeders' Association. The Messrs. Thayer have done much to create an interest in the further importation and breeding of a high grade of stock both for the farm and the road. While they have not entered this field for a money consideration, the part taken by these liberal-handed men has helped to encourage the farmer and stock raiser not only in Massachusetts but through New England.




TROTTING AND PACING CHAMPIONS

The chestnut stallion “Ralph Wilkes,” by “Red Wilkes,” dam “Mary Mays,” by “Mambrino Patchen” captured the five-year-old championship at Nashville, Tenn., October 19, 1894, by trotting in 2:06:3/4. “Ralph Wilkes” is a remarkably handsome horse and trots without the check rein, about which humanitarians have so often wrangled. As a two-year-old he took a record of 2:18. He was then bought from his Kentucky owner by Col. John H. Thayer, one of Boston’s millionaires, and has since been one of the most popular stallions in the New England States. As a three-year-old he did not race, but trotted an exhibition mile in 2:13. He did not appear on the trotting track as a four-year-old, but in 1894 he was entered in several races and was practically invincible, meeting only one defeat, and he capped the climax of a great season by achieving the five-year old championship.




The Horse Review, Volume 23 1901

The New England Breeders have decided to hold a meeting the first week In July, as last year. Aud have further decided to bar hobbles and to hang up a $10,000 purse for the 2:25 pacers at their Grand Circuit meeting. The early-closing classes of last year—the $10,000 Massachusetts, etc.—will be repeated this year. The Association has re-elected Col. John E. Thayer presldeut; J. Malcolm Forbes, vice-president, and C. M. Jewett, secretary.

THE BOSTON CLUBS PASS RESOLUTIONS

Last week the Gentlemen's Driving Club, of Boston, and the New England Breedrs' Association passed resolutions concerning the McKerron decision, the full text of which is as follows, having been kindly furnished us by Secretary T. L. Qulmby, of the Gentlemen's Driving Club:

"Whereas, the Gentlemen's Driving Club of Boston, an association formed for the purpose of conducting matinee racing along amateur lines, and In membership with the Natisnal Trotting Association, learns with regret that the Board of Review of the National Trotting Association has ruled that time made by a horse competing for a cup other than a perpetual challenge trophy constitutes a record, as per case No. 3806 of the records of the National Trotting Association;

"Whereas, the Gentlemen's Driving Club of Boston believes this ruling Is not In accord with the spirit of Rule 42, See. 1, defining a 'public race,' and that said ruling establishes a precedent Injurious to the Interests of matinee racing; be it therefore

"Resolved, that the Gentlemen's Driving Club of Boston respectfully petition the honorable Board of Appeals of the National Trotting Association to grant an appeal from the aforesaid ruling;

"Resolved, that the secretary be empowered to represent the Gentlemen's Driving Club before the honorable Board of Appeals If this petition be granted, and that a copy of these resolutions be forwarded to the secretary of the National Trotting Association."

The Breeders' resolutions read as follows:

"Whereas, we welcome the aid and assistance of all associations that tend to spread an Interest In the breed of trotting horses nnd all such agents as make for the elevation of the sport of racing; that

"Whereas, our observation having beeu that the Geutlemeu's Driving Club of Boston, an association formed for the purpose of conducting matinee racing on amateur Hues, has been a source of strength and support to our association; that

"Whereas, we believe It Is advisable for the parent associations to foster and promote the Interests of amateur racing by every legitimate means at their command, that

"Whereas, we regard the recent ruling of the Board of Review of the National Trotting Association, Imposing a record f 2:10 upon John A. McKerron for winning a heat n Sept. 27, at Readvllle, Mass., In competition for the Challenge trophy offered by the Gentlemen's Driving Club of Boston, not to be, under the conditions stipulated for the contest. In accord with the spirit of the rule defining a public race,' and that the ruling established a pieeedent Inimical to the Interests of amateur racing: lie It therefore

"Resolved, that we, the directors of the New England Trotting Horse Breeders' Association, an association organized to aid and encourage the breeding of the trotting horse by offering purses for contests of speed, and In membership with the Ntlonal Trotting Association, desire to record our sympathy with the move of the Gentlemen's Driving Club of Boston to secure a reversal of the aforesaid ruling at the hands of the Board of Appeals of the National Trotting Association;

"Resolved, that copies of these resolutions be forwarded to the secretary of the Gentlemen's Driving Club of Boston and to the secretary of the National Trotting Association."
