North Memphis Driving Range Park

The southwest corner of this mile harness track was here; its long axis ran northeastward. It was developed mainly by C.K.G. Billings. Here Ed Geers brought out many famous horses. Here, also, Dan Patch made his record of 1.55 1/4, and here occurred the races for the Memphis Gold Cup. The most famous were between Lou Dillon and Major Delmar in 1903 and 1904.
