Morgan Horse


On Saturday September 6th 2014 starting at 1 PM, Morgan Horses will be trotting down the famous Morgan Mile Road in Brookfield Vermont. History will repeat itself since the famous Morgan Horse named Figure and later called Justin Morgan or The Morgan Horse, raced down this old Vermont Road. He was raced against two New York running horses in Brookfield, Vt. in 1796 (defeating both easily).

That stretch of road is known as "Morgan Mile" to this day and is located close to the place Morgan is said to have lived near the Randolph-Brookfield town line. Figure went on to become known as the Justin Morgan horse.

Organizer Dennis Tatro and The Vermont Morgan Horse Association have put together a series of trotting races in which Morgan Horses will race two at a time. Races will be at a trot, under saddle as well as in harness. Starting time is 1 PM on The Morgan Mile Road in Brookfield Vermont.

Plan to attend this event or better yet, bring a Morgan Horse and race in this event!
