Bedford Weekly Mail
September 13, 1912
NOTE: The item below was abbreviated from the original as shown by the ellipsis.
Several years have elapsed since Bedford has been represented at the county fairs in the speed departments and even now only a few know that at present Bedford is most creditably represented. Out at the races battling for honors against great odds is "Lady Bedford," a comely brown mare sired by Coastman 208 1/4 and owned by Dr. C. D. Driscoll, a local dentist.
"Lady Bedford" was purchased July 22, 1912, at Columbus Indiana, when she had had 28 days' work amidst rain and mud.
Last week "Lady Bedford" started in two races at Princeton, Ind., finishing close third in each race which was much to her credit considering her preparation and the high-class company in which she started and last but not least the fact that her driver, Dr. C. D. Driscoll, is an inexperienced driver.
