THE BILLY and DOTTIE HAUGHTON ON-LINE AUCTION

John McInnis auctioneers is honored to having been selected to bring to public auction the estate of Dorothy Haughton aka "First Lady of Harness Racing" which not only includes many of her personal furnishings and collectables but also the trophies, memorabilia and personal effects of her late husband Billy Haughton who passed away in 1986. In a career that spanned four decades, Billy Haughton rose to the top, not only as a trainer-driver, but as head of the largest harness racing stable in the country. He won twelve money winning ti-tles and six dash winning crowns. Among major laurels gathered by Haughton were four Hambletonians, seven Messenger Stakes and pacing's 1968 Triple Crown with Rum Customer. It was Billy Haughton who developed Nihilator, the richest and fastest (in a race) three-year-old Standardbred to that date. Billy Haughton was inducted into the Living Hall of Fame in 1968. He died in July, 1986 as a result of a race accident at Yonkers Raceway.
