Why it's called the Dexter Room

lenox-ma-hotels--carriage-house--dexter-room-4Each Carriage House room is named after a racehorse owned by the Bonners, who owned Hampton Terrace at the turn of the century. They were the most famous owners of racehorses in the country at that time.

Dexter made his debut as a racehorse on May 4, 1864 and won in straight heats. In 1865, Dexter lost only once, to Lady Thorn. In 1866, he won 25 of 26 starts. The next year, he beat the great Goldsmith Maid and then won five successive races against Lady Thorn.

On July 30, 1867, Dexter won in 2:19, setting the new world record. Two weeks later, he trotted 2:17-1/4 in Buffalo to further lower the record. After three more wins, he retired. Dexter was purchased in September 1867 by Robert Bonner for $35,000 and was Mr. Bonner's favorite road horse. Dexter died April 21, 1888.

“I enjoyed my stay at Hampton Terrace very much. The beds alone are worth the visit. Perfectly located, and warmly suited, I look forward to getting another chance to visit.”
