 Looking Back

This month in mid-atlantic thoroughbred history! For Looking Back archives click here.

On the cover, M. F. H. John Bowling, of the Marlborough Hunt, and Junior Master John Brooke Kelly, whose ancestors imported some of Maryland’s first foxhounds in 1650, at the first Junior Meet of the Southern Maryland organization.

  • Adolphe Pons’ Country Life Farm, in Bel Air, Md., enjoyed a successful start to the new year as the consistent and speedy Trojan Fleet became the first Maryland-bred stakes winner of 1947. A performer in the colors of Baltimore’s Bruce Livie, Trojan Fleet was a product of the Pons stud farm. The same was true of the smart juvenile colt Daubesse, a son of Dauber and *Druidesse II, the first locally raised juvenile to score in Hialeah’s 2-year-old races.
