    Default Amy Murray - Farewell - Link to Picture Added - First Post

    Today, those of us who frequent the backside of the Finger Lakes Race Track mourn the loss of trainer Amy Murray. Amy was taken from us, suddenly, and all too soon, this week.

    She wasn't a famous trainer, but she was one of those caring, dedicated people that we wish all trainers could be. Her horses thrived under her care. Her friends did also.

    I shall always carry two memories, especially, of Amy. One was the fact that she was one of the first to support the FLTAP Trainer's Listings. Not only did she list her horses with us from the very beginning, but, if people came to see a horse of her's, and it didn't suit, she would take time from her busy day to take that person around to see other horses on the listings that might be right.

    The other thing that I will always remember is her joyous laugh. It rang out loud and clear over the backside, and, you could not help be feel happier, hearing it.

    So, goodbye Amy. I will miss you.

    Thank you for posting this Louise.

    Amy was always able to find joy in her day, no matter how hard it happened to be going. She brought out the best in her people and her horses.

    That laugh of hers was so contagious and her sense of humor was something to look forward to each time we visited her shedrow.

    Ditto. Condolences to her friends, family, and acquaintances
    Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
    Sam: A job? Does it pay?
    Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
    Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

    I'm so sorry Louise.

    I do not know Amy either, but it is very sad to hear a kind, caring horsewoman has passed. Thanks for sharing who she was.

    I didn't know her either, but it is people like her that are the true horseman in this business, the rest are just licensed trainers. Unfortunately, there are very few real handons caring horsemen left.

    My condolences as well to her family, friends, and the horses she loved.

    That's a beautiful picture that conveys a soft, caring empathy between her and her horse. What a nice capturing of her spirit. Beautiful woman, beautiful expression of her heart. God bless you in your journey.
