5/20/17 Fine Harness World's Grand Champions 1945 through 1986

This is the next installment featuring the World's Grand Champion Fine Harness horses starting with Captain Bird from 1945.  This whole idea evolved when someone asked for his picture.  I figured it would be a good idea to try to locate as many WGC's as possible and be able to locate them in one place.  This group includes five time champion Colonel Boyle, four time champion Tashi Ling, and arguably the best of the bunch, The Lemon Drop Kid.
