The Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame will present “The Cradle of the Trotter,” a one-hour staged reading accompanied by numerous photographs and images on Saturday, February 16th at 1:00 p.m. This live performance tells the story of early harness racing, the influence the sport has had on Goshen, New York and the reason generations of Goshenites hold the sport so dear.

Come see images of Goshen Historic Track and Good Time Park when they were the places to be on race days in Goshen and learn about the influential men and famous horses that made Goshen the Cradle of the Trotter.

The performers are Ben Hudson, Emma Jorgensen and Ken Tschan. Tickets are $5 and light refreshments will be served. The Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame is open Tuesday through Sunday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
