henry ten eyck white
One of the foremost turf writers of all time, Henry Ten Eyck White began his career in the high-wheel sulky days. He "ghost wrote" John Splan's book Life with the Trotters. As a writer for the Chicago Tribune, he contributed a regular feature called "Lakeside Musings," believed by some to be the first "column" in the history of the newspaper world. It later appeared in book form under that name. For years, White's harness racing column in the "Trib" was a favorite with horsemen across the nation. He covered the Grand Circuit meetings extensively in his inimitable, rather pungent style.
Published in the Harness Racing Museum's 1994 book, The Immortals
