The Stables of Willie K

William K. Vanderbilt Jr. was a man of many talents and interests. The founder of America's first major auto race, the William K. Vanderbilt Jr. Cup International Race, was a race car driver, railroad executive, yachtsman and much more. Included in his long list of interests were horses. As the young man friends called "Willie K" came into adulthood at the turn of the 20th Century the big three sports were baseball, boxing and horse racing. Admiration of horse flesh was much in vogue and Vanderbilt had a choice selection housed in state-of-the-art stables. Attached is a feature article that appeared in the Sunday October 13, 1907 edition of the Indianapolis Star.
