130 years ago today - Sep 26, 1881

[General] Heber J. Grant expresses his disappointment about his racehorse being disqualified from upcoming race in Salt Lake City."I had counted considerable, however, on Hyrum's winning the race and the horse becoming enough of a public favorite that I could sell him for a nice round sum." Heber becomes apostle in 1882, and horse racing remains legal in Utah until 1913.
