Dorothy ‘Dottie’ Haughton, the widow of the late Hall of Famer Billy Haughton, passed away this morning (Monday, April 1, 2019) at the age of 87. She had been in failing health this winter.

Haughton was well known for her involvement with harness racing during her husband's career, including breeding and co-owning his great mare trotting champion Keystone Pioneer. Haughton and her husband drove a team of horses in the inaugural parade for President Ronald Reagan.

Following her husband's death due to injuries suffered in a racing accident, Haughton became an active and ardent supporter of the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame and served as a trustee.

Haughton is survived by her three sons, all of whom have been involved with harness racing--Tommy, a trainer, Cammie, a racing official and Bill Jr., who works in livestock insurance; her daughter, Holley; and several grandchildren.

A memorial service is expected to be held in New Hampshire, where Haughton has lived for many years. More information will be posted when available.
