Famous Horsewoman Of Viginia


Bush, Francis Marion. Famous Horsewomen of Virginia. Virginians have always been involved in horse racing, since way back in Colonial days. Only from the 20th Century, however, has the “fair sex” been seriously involved in the sport. Probably the most famous across the country was Penny Chenery Tweedy, whose Meadow Farm produced the unequaled Secretariat and stablemate Riva Ridge. Piedmont Virginians will be more familiar than others with Theodora Randolph, Marion du Pont Scott, Diana Firestone, and Eve Fout. Francis Bush acquaints us with others involved with racing as well, listing their top horses and their accomplishments after a brief biography. B&w photos. Hardcover, 165pp. $24.95
