Did you know…… In 1891 the Champaign County Fair used harness horses fixed to racing sulkies with a wagon wheel design. In 1892 they were suspended with a pneumatic design. Today, sulkies still use a pneumatic suspension and bicycle style tires allowing harness racing to run much faster.
And if that’s wasn’t enough….. The Champaign Co. Fairgrounds is the home of April Star. The first several time National Champion, and the first to fly in an airplane. During those flights, dirt from the race track accompanied April Star. April Star is now buried in the infield of the track at the Champaign Co. Fairgrounds under a beautiful marker.
