1940 Blockade and Monty R Duel in Maryland Timber Racing

In 2007 The Chronicle of the Horse magazine published my article about Monty R and the 1940 Maryland timber racing season. In 2010 I gave the article to Ric Cottom to adapt for his WYPR Public Radio segment, Your Maryland. I missed the broadcast when it finally aired in 2014, but recently found it in the WYPR podcast archive. You can listen to it by clicking here. Or read the article with photos by clicking here.
