Mandy and the Greats Part 2

By popular demand (lol) and a few specific requests, I am posting another batch of photos of Mandy and some of the great horses she has met over the years. Hope you enjoy. Next week it is back to Countdown to the Cup.


First horse photo at 10 months old with Northern Dancer


Another shot with Secretariat


Meeting the horse who started it all for me, Damascus


A little fun with Nijinsky


A kiss for my all-time favorite filly Gallant Bloom


With the one and only Seattle Slew


The imposing presence of the Mighty Forego


Yes, she actually got to touch the irascible John Henry


The king of sires, Mr. Prospector


With A.P. Indy before he became a breeding legend


Sad to look at this photo of the handsome Ferdinand


With the brilliant Easy Goer


Special meeting with the horse closest to my heart, His Majesty


Not a great horse, but Met Mile winner Honour and Glory was the first Thoroughbred Mandy held by herself


Greatness and kindness; you couldn't help but love Affirmed


Quiet moment with Bill Mott and Cigar


Holding Theatrical. Who knows what is on his mind


Feeding a banana to Awesome Again


With the brilliant Silverbulletday


It was wise to keep your distance with Skip Away, but we were very close to him because of Sonny and Carolyn Hine


Years later with a lighter version of Skip Away


Sort of a bonus photo of Mandy aboard Da Hoss' buddy Business is Boomin (Boomer) on the gallops at Michael Dickinson's Tapeta Farm
