Description
Photograph of a maltese cross marking the burial sites of four of Elias J. "Lucky" Baldwin's horses, ca.1910. The large, square-shaped cross is pictured on a pedestal to the left, just behind a bush. To the right, a plaque is visible which lists the horses and their accomplishments at track. In the background, a collection of squat adobes can be seen lining a dirt street.
The plaque reads: "Final Resting Ground of American Derby Winners. Owned by E.J. Baldwin: Volante (Spanish for "Flyer") -- Won American Derby in 1885. Silver Cloud -- won American Derby in 1886. Emperor of Norfolk -- won American Derby in 1888. Rey El Santa Anita -- won American Derby in 1894. No other horse breeder ever owned more than one American Derby winner. E.J. Baldwin owned and bred four. The Baldwin colors were red and black with the now-famous Maltese cross".
