    What a fantastic woman. She’s pushed and shoved to make Secretariat the greatest in the world. Who would have guessed that a horse foaled at Doswell would have reached such lofty heights She did it with grace and style. One of her special achievements has been getting Secretariat’s Preakness race time lowered due to a faulty clock. See more of her feats in my book titled “Famous Horse Women of Virginia”,Dementi Publishing, Manakin Sabot, Virginia.

  2. A fantastic and gracious lady who I admire so much. I will always cherish the time I was able to spend with you when you came to Colonial Downs in its earlier years. Appreciate all the things you autographed for me which I truly hold so dear. Happy Birthday wonderful lady and thank you for everything you did for Secretariat. I can not watch the movie without crying!
