Ottawa, Ontario, author Barry P. Hall’s first book, Ghost From The Holocaust, is about a survivor of the holocaust who is murdered at the Morrow Park, the former Standardbred racetrack in Peterborough.
“It’s a mystery,” explained Hall. “I like mysteries and I like horse racing and I thought it would appeal to people. It’s set in 1956 so it has a historical aspect as well.”
Racing concluded at Morrow Park in 1971. The following year harness racing was introduced at Kawartha Downs where it continues today. Kawartha will have copies of Mr. Hall’s book available for sale on 2016 race nights and are working on having the author on hand one race night to autograph copies.
The book may be ordered through Amazon.
