  1. Brown Bag Lunch -- Montana Horse-Racing: A History

    July 24, 2019, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ Archives Building

    For centuries, on prairie grasslands, dusty streets and racing ovals, everyday Montanans participated in the sport of kings. Over a century after horses arrived in the region, Lewis and Clark's Nez Perce guides staged horse races at Traveler’s Rest in 1806. In 1890, a part-Thoroughbred named Bob Wade set a world record for a quarter mile in Butte, a mark that stood until 1958. The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, July 24,with a presentation and reading by Brenda Wahler as she discusses her new book, Montana Horse Racing: A History. Brenda Wahler is a fourth-generation Montanan with a lifelong interest in horses and history. She showed horses in the 1970s and 1980s, when the racing community was a major presence at fairgrounds across the country. Through college and beyond, she taught riding and judged horse shows.
