Taking a trot down memory lane with historic Blackpool races
This week in pictures we focus in on trotting races held in Blackpool in the last century.
Harness or trotting racing is a form of horse racing in which the horses race at a specific gait (a trot or a pace).
They usually pull a two-wheeled cart, occupied by a driver.
Some of the races took place in Blackpool at Whitegate Park, with others being held at Common Edge in Marton.
