henry h. knight
Henry Knight was born in 1889 at Almahurst Farm, Lexington, Kentucky. After a formal education, he returned to the farm in 1932 after the death of an uncle, to operate Almahurst. He soon became known as one of the world's leading figures in horsebreeding. Although Knight was a successful breeder of Thoroughbreds, his claim to fame was the champion Greyhound; also Yankee Maid and Chestertown - all three Hambletonian winners. Knight always retained his interest in trotters and continued to breed them on a limited scale. He was interested in the promotion of harness racing and was active in the governing bodies of the sport. Henry Knight died in Kentucky in 1959.
