This is a picture of the black gelding pacer, Black Slipper. Trainer Hugh Ports kept the horse fit by jogging in a sleigh during the winter of 1902. Black Slipper raced at the 1902 Wayne County Fair (Wooster, Ohio) in the 2:22 Pace going for a purse of $ 250. Charlie Ports raced Black Slipper four heats where he finished 5 5 2 3 and was placed sixth overall out of the seven horses in the race. Times for the four heats were 2:22, 2:24 1/2, 2:23 1/2, 2:26 1/2.
