Columbus, OH --- Longtime Ohio horseman Bill Brown, 79, who trained and drove Standardbreds for many years in the Midwest and predominately Ohio, died July 27, 2014, in a Huntington, W.Va. hospital.

He not only enjoyed driving and training horses, he was also an avid fan of the sport. He joined his brother, Robert, later in his career to form the Brown Brothers Racing Stable and together they developed many stakes horses throughout the years and enjoyed much success on the Ohio circuit.

Mr. Brown's legacy continues with the success of many nieces and nephews having great success in the sport today.
