Well, I went through some old boxes of memorabilia (and much junk) and pulled out some more items of my vintage (late '70s-early '80s). Over the next few nights, I will post some gems for your entertainment. Some I will post as "Guess Who?" and some I'll tell you about. I hope you enjoy them!

Guess who this young man (with me and my first Dal, Tweed)is, circa 1976 at C.W. Post. Went on to a VERY successful pro career!

Bonus points if you know what the "EF" on the curtains stands for!

in 1976, Buccy was the Grand Prix Horse of the Year. Here are the final standings. Note the money amounts! And the second place horse, Radnor II, actually had more money, but Buccy had more points.

The names of these old horses should bring back some memories!

At the end of the latest issue of PH there is a commentary or an 'in the life' column of Michael Matz's longtime grooom. I believe her name is Karen G.

she talks about her career, recent changes due to MM getting into racing, becoming a steward, and her ankle injury. she also talked about seeing longtime friends this past year at WEF. and although your name was spelled Lori, i assumed she was referring to you as the groom of Balbucco (again, sorry about the spelling!!).

I, too, received my PH yesterday and reading the My Turn column by Karen Golding. When she talked about a gathering in Florida of former grooms and friends, I thought of you and remembered your postings about the Grooms Reunions.

Karen also had another short article on 10 tips for traveling, I think. I just did a quick look through and haven't gotten that far in my real reading.

The Butlers is correct. They sent that picture to me with a Christmas card in 1980.

Fair Warning is also correct, also came with a Christmas card that featured Brumath on the cover.

EF is indeed, Equinox Farm, my first job in the east. Owned by Francesco Galesi (father of Adriana and Christina, for those that remember them). Trainer was Rick Eckhardt, the Curreys boarded their ponies there.

The horse Frank is riding is Viscount.

The horse/rider on the cover of the Invitational program is '76 winners, Robert Ridland and Southside. Robert and "Soo-Soo" went on to do well in the Montreal Olympics.

More tonight, glad you enjoy these "blasts from the past."

It just goes to show you should go with your instinct. I almost guessed Clavier's Clancy, but I thought it was a long shot. Ellie did some riding for Emerson during the time we had Clancy. Emerson was a huge fan of Clavier, and we had several of his offspring in the barn during that time. Clancy was owned by Sally Haas I think. Ellie rode him some, but Sally Kuhn showed him more. Tom Dembinski might have also shown him. You can see we were all over the place with riders before Leslie came along! Tom, Ellie and Brian Flynn all rode for Fairfield early on.

RJ is NOT correct. It is Robert Ridland on Nazarius.

Joann and Frank Houston and S.Opal and Murmansk is correct.

Abby, Plummer is correct. I thought you knew him well. The Hunterdon grooms are Lori Free and Johnny Black. I met Johnny when I came out to watch Michael Hart in the Medal the first year he showed in it ('74 or '75). So his was one familiar face I knew when I moved out here and he was a really nice guy. Poncho sort of took his place when he started for H'don. They are working on Elizabeth Sheehan's jr. hunter, Exciteress (always loved that name).

Armand is riding his first big jumper, Sombre.

Much better, class! I'll do one or two more nights before putting this thread to bed. Then I'll take Dublin up on her suggestion and get them ALL up on a website and let you know when I have done that.

was out of a 1977 PH with an article on careers with horses. INterviews were with Rock Bottom (Plummer), Hunterdon (Johnny Black) and Country Club (Carlene Blunt's farm).

but the magazine is all in French (they later went to three languages, French, German and English).

This is a 20 year old Robert Ridland on Almost Persuaded. The caption mentions that he was a student at the famous Yale University (I could pick that out). /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

this is a picture of a 19 year old Conrad on Triple Crown. Caption says they were second in the Wills GP (I think!)

a predecessor to our Childrens International Jumping competition was held in San Juan, Puerto Rico in '71. Some familiar faces were there:

Michelle McEvoy (Grubb) is third from left, Marcus Fuchs next to the right of her, Juan Rieckehoff is 6th from the left, Michel Vaillancourt is 8th from the left.

I have a plan for one more posting before putting this thread to bed. I'll get to it by the end of the week!

What a great trip down Memory Lane!Was Frank Chapot riding Viscount? /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

yes on Frank and Viscount.

Your guess of McLain on the pony (?) is correct; EF was for Equinox Farm, my first employer upon my move east.

Probably won't be 'til this weekend. I've started rising early and (yeeks!!) exercising, so am not spending much if any time on the 'puter in the evening. So, bear with me!
