Saturday Speaker Series: An Evening With Col. Baker’s Legendary Trotter Greyhound

  • St. Charles History Museum 215 E. Main Street St Charles, IL 60174 (map)

Hotel Baker Stables was known for champion Standardbred harness race horses that were owned by Col. Baker. The star of the stable was the great grey gelding named Greyhound. Greyhound set an astonishing 25 world records and never disappointed the crowds that came to see him perform. 

Please join us as we present the history of Greyhound’s nearly three decade career including his retirement. Some never before seen photographs from Col. Baker's collection will be included in the lecture.
