Carol Taylor, chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, says the Triple-Crown run of race horse Justify has reminded her of the days in the late 19th and early 20th centuries when Greenville was a regional horse-racing center.  The North Texas Fairgrounds, located at Moulton and Stanford Streets, near the long-standing YMCA building, were the site of a popular race track.
