Dan Patch Days

Dan Patch Days is a festival held annually in honor of the world famous pacer who was fouled in Oxford, Indiana to owner Daniel Messner, Jr.

Dan Patch was a long-legged, wobbly, awkward colt with knobby knees - the colt even required assistance to stand to nurse. Many of Messner's friends encouraged him to have the colt put out of his misery. Instead the colt was nurtured and trained to be a pacer. And the rest is history.

For more information on the Great Dan Patch, please visit the Indiana Historical Society website or Dan Patch Historical Society.
