HISTORY OF THE CORNWALL CHEESE AND BUTTER BOARD
 
Banner Boy

BANNER BOY
by WILLIAM A. ANDERSON
ibred and raised Banner Boy, perhaps a horse better known than any other ever produced in Cornwall. A brief sketch of the really notable career of Banner Boy should prove of interest to those interested in horseflesh.
       Banner Boy raced winter and summer during the seasons from 1900 to 1913. In June, 1902, he won the 2.35 pace at Lapine Park against thirteen contestants for a purse of $300.
       He lowered several track records at Alexandria, Valleyfield, St. Anne de Prescott and Cornwall. He still holds the half-mile record on the Cornwall track, 1.08 1/2.
       He also holds the one-mile record without driver. Time, 2.24, October 23rd, 1908.
       "Banner Boy," during his career, contested in 123 races. Of these, he won 91 firsts, 18 seconds, 9 thirds and 5 fourths. He was never flagged in a race.
