Back in about 2000, Jamie Mahar brought a young teenager, Jamie Stierhof, up to Tamarack to ride her horse, Dillon, because Jamie was fighting breast cancer.
He was good already, and he rode a bunch of our horses. The next year, he came back again, even better.

So I just got a call from Jamie Mahar, over the moon with excitement. The little kid who she started on his way just won the MD. Hunt Cup this afternoon on `Twill Do, in in very first start in that race.

How cool is that!!!???

We were there & were so happy for Billy Meister, trainer of Twill Do,
would he have ridden if he hadn't broken his pelvis the week before
in the Maryland Grand National?!!!!!!!!!!

Jamie looked to ride a good race, & had a great jump over the last
for the stretch run!
There's a youtube of the Race!
And there will be a video from the NSA race archive!

Congrats Denny!
