Penny Chenery Passes Away

The beloved Penny Chenery passed away, who is known to many as the lady behind Secretariat.  Secretariat was born at her father's Meadow Stud in Virginia and it was Penny who kept the stable going after her father passed away in 1973.  What a force she was and her accomplishments are too many to mention here. There is a nice overview of her life here.

In lieu of flowers, the Secretariat Foundation is offering special Penny Chenery Memorial fundraising projects on behalf of selected equine-related charities. For details, visit
