Cot Campbell, a longtime steeplechase owner and an ardent supporter of jump racing, was inducted into Saratoga Race Course’s Walk of Fame on Friday, Aug. 26.
Campbell and fellow inductee Bill Mott, a Racing Hall of Fame trainer, received their red jackets emblematic of Walk of Fame membership in ceremonies at the Upstate New York track.
An Aiken, S.C. resident with his wife, Anne, Campbell created Dogwood Stable, an innovator in syndicate ownership, in 1969. His keen eye for a horse, his masterful powers of persuasion, and the appeal of owning a racehorse propelled Dogwood to the forefront of the racing world.
Among Dogwood’s leading runners were Storm Song, Palace Malice, and Summer Squall, to name only three.
Dogwood also has raced steeplechase horses, and Inlander was voted the 1987 Eclipse Award after winning that year’s Colonial Cup.
