Here's a wonderful article about Jess Jackson's widow Barbara Banke and her Grace Stable. :)

Seriously? No one wants to comment on a woman whose stable name is an acronym for Girls Rule And Competently Endure? :lol:

Thanks for sharing!

I thought it was rather interesting to hear about how GRACE Stables came about and Jackson's view on fillies. :D

I never had a huge problem with Jackson and I'm glad Banke is continuing onward with his stables. Love 'em or hate 'em, racing will always need stables like that.

It is unfortunate that he got into the game so late. He has a great stable. breed to race not sell...I hope she continues the same idea. We need more of the old type owners....

Laurie I just saw this, thanks for that, it is a really good article. I have thought of her many times. They seemed a great couple, I am glad she is carrying on.
