Horse racingEdit

Morton Schwartz owned Elsmeade Farm on Russell Cave Pike near Lexington, Kentucky. Successful horses he raced included:

On August 21, 1935 Morton Schwartz sold all his bloodstock through a Fasig-Tipton dispersal auction held at Saratoga Springs, New York. Among the yearlings sold was a filly later named Dawn Play who would turn out to be the last Champion Schwartz bred when she was voted 1937 American Champion Three-Year-Old Filly. [5]

Morton Schwartz was a twin to brother Charles who won England's prestigious Grand National at Aintree Racecourse in 1926 with Jack Horner.[6]
