walter t. candler
Son of Asa Candler, an early leader of The Coca-Cola Company, Walter Candler was a highly successful businessman. He founded Lullwater Farm, where he raised top Standardbreds, including the famed Duke of Lullwater and one of the greatest stallions of all, Abbedale. Many top trainers were associated with Candler, such as Fred Egan, John Simpson and Delvin Miller. Candler not only bred horses, he also gave his time to the sport's organizations. He was a member of the Grand Circuit Stewards, The Hambletonian Society, a trustee of The Hall of Fame of the Trotter, now known as the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame, and the Kentucky Trotting Horse Breeders Association of Lexington. Walter T. Candler died in 1967.
