Old and New Friends
A perfect gift for every Thoroughbred lover!
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.
