While at the tack store, which is Quillin's (check it out if you are ever in the area!), I saw a poster advertising for the Secretariat Festival which happened to be taking place that day. After inquiring with the tack store saleswomen, we decided to check it out after lunch.
So glad we did!
Alexis got a signed poster with this guy -
The jockey from the movie - Otto Thorwarth!
And this famous lady was signing autographs - the line was super long so we just snapped a pic of her -
Penny Chenery - The First Lady of Racing, Secretariat's Owner
Charlie Davis - Secretariat's exercise rider
There was a silent auction with lots of memorabilia, gorgeous photos...Thoroughbred lover's paradise!
Will post soon a Riva update!
