In this week's Rewind, Robert Smith presents an old topic but with pictures not seen before in this forum. It's another edition of 'Picture Parade' and again with a central theme. Each of the photos selected contain at least two members of the same family; a number of them are multi-generational.

It's picture time again and I think this week's collection includes some very special old photos. To my knowledge none of them have been previously displayed in earlier Rewind editions but I'm not 100 percent sure. The routine stays the same; you the reading audience check them out and if you're game to try and identify some or all then give it a try. Jot the number down along with your guess and let the fun begin.

#1 - Can you put names on these two gents?


#2 - "Hitchin' A Ride." Can you figure out who these two fellows are? Looks like somebody is getting a little schooling.


#3 - If you can identify the man at the horse's head and the fellow in the pilot's seat you are all set. Some beautiful children in this one. (Photo courtesy Ken Fitzgerald)


#4 - This is a much newer picture than I usually display but a good one. Can you name any or all of these fine folks? (The Guardian)


#5 - Quite a bit of talent seated here I would say. Do you have them all figured out?


#6 - If ever there was a prize for "Cutest Picture Ever" this one would get my vote every day of the week. Let's give a clue; it's Mom and two of her darlings. Can you name them?


#7 - This 1972 picture depicts a very well known racing family then and now. Can you name them? One or two of our weekly 'experts' may have to be ruled as "ineligible" on this one.


#8 - These two fellows should be easy for many in the audience. Can you identify them?


#9 - Can you figure out who we have here? The driver is not part of the answer but might as well include his name too. (Abahazy photo collection)


#10 - This horse looks to be getting the "Royal Treatment." Any idea who this group of five might be?

Be sure to stay tuned in during the coming week when all of the correct identities will be given.

This week's pictures drew a lot of answers and our wide ranging panel of "experts" pretty much identified them all even though a couple took a while. All I can say is that I prefer asking the questions rather than answering them. Thanks so much.
Here are the correct identities: 
#1 - Basil (left) and son Jim Whelan
#2 - Billy Haughton and his son Peter
#3 - Smilin' Fred Goudreau at the head of Mr. Harmony Wyn, owner Chas. Regis with son Shelly Goudreau in the bike joined by the Fitzgerald children 
# 4 - Mark McDonald (left), Alea, his mother Gail, father Fred and brother James (far right) after winning Gold Cup & Saucer in 2011
# 5 - The brothers Dancer from left Vernon, Stanley and Harold "Sonny" 
# 6 - The Wray family, Mrs. Ruth Wray joined by son Jack and daughter Sharon, horse unknown. Just a great photo and I thank Joanne Wray for providing this for display in a Rewind column
# 7 - The entire Hie family. Back row: parents Cliff and Edith. Front row (l-r) sons Roger, Carman and Doug.
# 8 - Father Lloyd and his son Peter Smith 
# 9 - From left - Kenny White groom, horse J R Blaze, Wm. Patterson (see also far right), Jean Mrs. Russel Miller, Russel Miller, co-owners, driver Greg Wright, Marjorie (Miller) Patterson daughter of Russ and Jean. Taken at Wolverine 1973. Nice to hear from great granddaughter Trena.
# 10 - The Filion brothers. Far left in the driver's suit Henri, others are Renald brushing with Yves and Rheo at the bandages, I think? Doris is at the horse's head. (I have a problem keeping them straight).

January 25, 2021 - 9:11 amWell I'd better get #8 right

Helen Smith SAID...

Well I'd better get #8 right - It's my late husband, Lloyd Smith & his son Peter.

January 24, 2021 - 10:29 pmGreat photos! I am excited

Trena Lebedz SAID...

Great photos!
I am excited to say, picture 9 is my grandparents and great grandparents. Left to right Bill Patterson, Jean Miller, J Russel Miller, driver Greg Wright and Marjorie Patterson (Miller). JR Blaze is the horse - out of Blaze Pick and Gold Fare. This photo was a win for JR Blaze at Wolverine Raceway, May 10, 1973.
I am excited to be able to carry on our family connections in the standardbred breeding industry today. My great grandpa named all of his horses as JR and I do the same with my initials TJ. Excited to carry on his traditions and his legacy in the horse racing industry!

Number one is Basil Whelan with his son Jim. Number two is William Haughton with his son Peter or Tom. Number three is smiling Fred Goudreau holding the horse and his son Shelly driving. Number four is Mark and James MacDonald with their parents. Number five is Vernon Stanley and there father Harold. Number six is Mrs Ruth Wray holding on to maybe Ben Boy? With Jack and I thoughT Joanne but apparently it’s Sharon. Number Seven is the Hie family Edith and Cliff with their sons Carmen Roger and Doug who all had successful horse racing careers. Number nine is Russell Miller. Number ten is The Filion brothers. I will say Herve has the uniform on Reynold is brushing the horse with Reo Dennis and Doris.
