Zilco Breastplates, Traces & Underchecks

 "I went to a harness maker named Frank Riley in Richwood, Ohio and told him I wanted him to make me one like the fox hunters wore," Buxton remembered. "This breastcollar not only holds the harness in place, but it also does not impede the shoulder action of the horse, especially a trotter."

Horseman Dick Buxton is probably best remembered for his partnership with the mighty trotter Senator Frost--a horse not widely know to many harness racing fans today--but one which helped to establish Buxton as a trotting master  half a century ago.
