    Then you should buy her Old Friend's book. Nothing but the old guys. That woman has an incredible gift, I am so thankful she shares that gift with all of us.
    Her article about Chris Antley made me bawl my eyes out.

    I had one of Lord Avie's sons for a short time (had to euthanize him due to an injury) - he was a great horse.....

    Loved the piece about the trainer still visiting!

    We lost our Lord Avie daughter a couple years ago, but her then-orphan filly & an older daughter are still here & still favorites.

    I responded to her FB posting - what a wonderful article. I was right up close to him in the post parade for the Hopeful, along with Well Decorated, and West on Broad?. The three of them were altogether as they turned to gallop towards the gate, and I got all three of them in one shot.

    It was at that moment that I really saw what an amazing racehorse looked like. They were in such beautiful condition. I loved the idea of their careers just beginning.

    My sister lives in VA, and I may see her soon. If I have the time, and it's close enough, wonder if I could see him again, if only from a distance. Have to find those old snapshots! How thrilling to hear his name again - a blast from the past, and still present!

    Thanks so much for sharing this! I have an oldie too, just love him to bits. (not as old as Lord Avie- yet-)

    That brought back some memories! I remember Danny P well when I was galloping in NJ, I started in 82, so Lord Avie was still a youngster...both horse and trainer were class acts. So good to see them both all these years later doing so well.
