Active in the sport for nearly forty years, Stacey Smith introduced Dean Hanover to fame when the two-year-old set a world record for age and gait on a half-mile track (Weequahic Park in Newark, New Jersey). Smith was very active as an amateur driver with the Road Horse Association of New Jersey, which staged its events at Weequahic. A prominent owner, he raced Maid McElywn, Ben Ali and other horses that competed under the name of the Newbrook Stable, which he co-owned with William Strang. H. Stacey Smith died on November 8, 1938.
