It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Dorothy "Dottie" Haughton early Monday morning at her home in New Hampsire, surrounded by family and friends. Mrs. Haughton had been ill the past year. She was 87.

She is the widow of the great harness racing trainer and driver, Billy Haughton. After his passing, Mrs. Haughton was a long-time Harness Racing Museum trustee and supporter of the harness racing industry. 

She was honored in 2009 by the Florida Chapter of the United States Harness Writers Association with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Further details will be posted.
