Old and New Friends

A per­fect gift for ev­ery Thor­ough­bred lover!

Daily Racing Form National Digital Edition - - Sha Tin - by BAR­BARA D. LIV­INGSTON

Bar­bara D. Liv­ingston, Daily Racing Form chief pho­tog­ra­pher and five-time Eclipse Award win­ner, has de­liv­ered the lat­est vol­ume of her beloved work, Old and New Friends. It con­tains 224 pages of stun­ning pho­tog­ra­phy chron­i­cling fa­mous and not-so-fa­mous Thor­ough­breds in their se­nior years. Her pre­vi­ous col­lec­tions on older equines lit a spark among horse racing afi­ciona­dos, with all her pre­vi­ous books hav­ing sold out. Now, Liv­ingston brings us Old and New Friends, fea­tur­ing nearly 100 re­tired horses in­clud­ing dual clas­sic win­ner Sil­ver Charm, cham­pion Hid­den Lake, and the coun­try’s old­est-ever recorded Thor­ough­bred, Prospect Point. Ac­com­pa­ny­ing the pho­tos for each horse is a heart­warm­ing story about their life, care­givers, and ac­com­plish­ments – whether they be big or small. Most im­por­tantly it em­braces the love show­ered upon these se­lected equine friends in their later years. And in a slight de­par­ture from the ear­lier editions, Liv­ingston also fea­tures some younger sub­jects this time (hence the New Friends), in­clud­ing the 2009 Horse of the Year, Rachel Alexan­dra, and the 2015 Triple Crown win­ner, Amer­i­can Pharoah.
