Kudos to Heyden

Just another note of appreciation for Hollywood Heyden. I don’t know who else could have written such an accurate and personal memoriam for Ben Webster (full story here). The initial decades of the Meadowlands revolutionized harness racing and all those who created that history are so important to harness racing’s narrative. Although he hasn’t been active for many years, Benny was a vital part of that history. He was a special person, and an exceptional driver but mostly a unique racetrack character. Because of Holly’s close involvement in the Meadowlands he captured Benny perfectly and I don’t know that anyone else could have done such a complete remembrance.
