    HEY DANA, Yes it is me. Notice I didn't include myself in the Dream Team Grooms because after florida I would leave and say I was NEVER doing this again then I would be back again by the Hampton Classic and ready to go to Florida again. EMAIL ME- DOLCEVITA1999@aol.com

    Cheryl is in Sth. Pines, has her own small farm. I haven't thought about Hambone in ages. Last I heard he was somewhere in Georgia, but that was years ago. He really disappeared from show life. I wonder if Caroline Clark would know where he is... Timmy Foster might also know.

    I just wanted this post to get back up to the top again. I don't know any grooms personally but I think this is just as important as the Olympic Dream Team. Come on Ken Kraus you need to add to this one.

    Thumbs up to Fortune Hunter!!! Being a groom is a pretty thankless job (most of the time) and without grooms, most of those horses wouldn't make it to the ring (in 1 piece!!!!) let alone to the next Grand Prix!! Who else do you see on a Sunday evening after the class all covered in poultice while the riders and trainers hang out and enjoy the glory? THE GROOM!! But, who else does that special horse recognize when it's time for night check, or before the sun comes up (over tent city...) THE GROOM!!!!

    Flashbacks...
    Ronnie Silcox - Snowbound 1968. deceased.
    Syd Eustace (at Windrush! with Lyps). Syd battled breat cancer.
    SID Hoblit (SHE is the one who worked for Delaware Equine). She was one of Dello Joio's grooms.
    Moira Caffarey (I Love You). deceased. Wendy Waters Matthews! Blast from the past. What about Michael Snyder and Allegro, Johnny's Pocket... And who could forget his brother David and Albany. Great grooms all. Peter Rohr still works for Martha Wachtel Jolicoeur. Dana Goedewaagen and April Rullah (are they still out longeing?). I'll think of more.

    What ever happened to Stillmeadow?

    Ten years after I took the tack off April Rullah for the last time at New York, Ed Andrews gave her back to me! I had not seen her in all that time. The day she arrived in Mass. was a thrilling one for me, and I put tack on her and took her for a short walk. It was an emotional day....
    I enjoyed having her for about a year, she was in foal to Truck Driving Man when she colicked and died. Broke my heart....

    Cindy, I saw Betsy at Wellington I think it was 97. All I could do was say HI as I was on my way to the ring, and that was the last I saw of her. Dennis was not with her. She was talking to Noel at the time. Track down Noel, and she may know. I also heard that Cocoa was managing a barn (maybe in Tampa or Clearwater) and was not with Gail anymore. That also was a couple of years ago. Last I heard of Shep was that he ran into trouble when he was at Mason's in Newport, and his health was really failing. Don't know many details.
