The Story Behind the Name…

Maud S Room

“Queen of the Turf,” Maud S. was foaled in 1874 in Kentucky, a light-red chestnut. She was sold to Capt. George M. Stone in 1877 for $350. After trotting a mile in 2:17 1/2 at Lexington, KY in 1878, she was immediately bought by William H. Vanderbilt for $21,000. She was used as Vanderbilt’s roadhorse until 1884, when she was returned to the turf to lower the record to 2:10 and was sold to Robert Bonner for $40,000. It was well documented that Vanderbilt turned down $100,000 from a racing syndicate in order that his favorite and most famous horse spend the rest of her days in Bonner’s benevolent care. While in his stable she trotted her record mile in 2:08 3/4 at Cleveland, OH, this being the seventh time she had lowered the world record in six years. In 1885 she was permanently retired as a road horse and died on March 17, 1901, her obituary appearing on the front page of the New York Times. She is buried in Tarrytown, NY, next to the immortal, Dexter.

Broke world record seven times between 1880 and 1885, lowering it from 2:11 3/4  to 2:08 3/4. She retired with the record, which was subsequently lowered by Sunol, a Bonner horse.

"…We think the best part of the holiday was spent at the Hampton Terrace Inn in Lenox. This was a small inn (12 double bedrooms) which was an old clapboard house, full of character, and lovingly restored and furnished by the owner and his wife. Our bedroom was very spacious and comfortable and everything about the house was friendly, with welcoming lounges to relax in, and the family dog wagging his tail and coming up to us every time we walked across the lawn to the main house. We enjoyed talking to the owner, and to other guests over home cooked breakfasts, and for dinner, a street lined with very good restaurants was just a few minutes walk away. This was, without a doubt, the best part of our holiday, and we would not hesitate in recommending the Hampton Terrace to others."
