Unevenly trimmed to fit a frame (not included in this lot). Curling, as shown in photo. 8 X 10 inch black and white photo of a horse race at Almeda Downs in Texas (assumed) on February 14, 1965. The picture shows three images from the race: A photo finish, the winning team, and information on the top two horses - "Tinta Tiara" and "Clippity Clop." Under Owner are Running M Ranch for Tinta Tiara and J.B. Ferguson for Clippity Clop. Under Trainer is Buffalo (Hugh Buffaloe). Almeda Downs is assumed to have been in Almeda, Texas, then an unincorporated area south of downtown Houston. We cannot find any information on the horse track there. This photo was acquired in a batch of Texas horse track photos so it is reasonable to assume Almeda Downs was in the Houston area. J.B. Ferguson may be the rancher and quarter horse breeder of the same name (John B. Ferguson) from McKay (Wharton), Texas, who was a Director of the American Quarter Horse Association from 1940 until his death in 1978. He was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 1990.
