Fred Moffatt's Horses

Description

D. Fay, a pacer horse owned by Fred Moffatt, poses with its sulky (a lightweight, two-wheeled vehicle used by jockeys for harness racing) and driver in front of the stable. Fred Moffatt, owner of Moffatt Cigar Company, located at 212 W. State Street, was very active in horse racing, which was a popular sport in Rockford. This photograph may have been taken at the "driving range" just north of the city limits or at the Fairgrounds, possibly at the same time as photos 88.122.708, 88.122.660, 88.122.659c, 88.122.659b, 88.122.659a, and 88.122.678.
