Rac­ing mem­o­ries

EQUUS - - Eq Letters -

Thank you so much for the won­der­ful ar­ti­cles about Amer­i­can Pharoah and other great race­horses (“Amer­i­can Pharoah: Making History,” Spe­cial Re­port, EQUUS 458). Two of my fa­vorites were not men­tioned. One is Funny Cide, who won the Ken­tucky Derby and the Preak­ness Stakes in 2003. His own­ers, some old school friends, could only af­ford to bring their fam­i­lies to the Ken­tucky Derby in a rented school bus.

My other fa­vorite is Se­abis­cuit, who was very small and loved to sleep. He be­came a rac­ing hero dur­ing the Great De­pres­sion by win­ning race af­ter race. Thank you for writ­ing about the race­horses and the history. Rose­mary Gustafson Fern­dale, Wash­ing­ton
