Scope:

The images document the history of Richmond’s race tracks and horse racing industry. Two cassette tapes containing recordings of Jack Short calling races are also included. Collection is arranged in two series: 1. Photographs; 2. Sound recordings.
History / Biographical:
Jack Lowe, Geraldine (Dody) Wray and Gerry Gilker grew up in Richmond in the 1930s and 1940s and belonged to families involved in the horse racing industry. With the aim of documenting the industry, the three determined to collect photographs and stories from others connected to Richmond’s race tracks and horse racing history. Between 1998 and 2001, they put together a collection of memoirs and photographs related to the history of thoroughbred racing in Richmond. Photographs were donated to the Archives on a copy loan basis; copy prints and negatives were made, and the originals returned to donors. With the help of the City of Richmond Archives and the Friends of the Richmond Archives, a selection of these were compiled and published as a book titled “Whispers From The Shedrows.”
