Log Cabin Stable

Log Cabin Stable was a Thoroughbred horse racing partnership founded in 1923 by New York City financiers W. Averell Harriman and Bert Walker who raced under orange and white silks.

As part of a private purchase of twenty horses, in January of 1925 Harriman and Walker acquired Chance Play from the estate of August Belmont, Jr. [1] The horse would be voted the retrospective American Horse of the Year for 1926.

A disagreement between the two owners of Log Cabin Stable in the fall of 1926 led to the partnership being dissolved and Averell Harriman became the stable's sole owner. [2]

Trainers who worked for the Log Cabin stable include Albert Simons (1923), Will. M. Wallace (1924), Louis Feustel (1925-July 1926), John I. Smith (1927-1928), George M. Odom (1928).
