Roanoke Times, “Secretariat’s gallop into greatness, movie fame has W&L tie”

by admin

Excerpted from the Roanoke Times Oct. 7, 2010 article, “Secretariat’s gallop into greatness, movie fame has W&L tie”:

One of Chenery’s horses, Hill Prince, won the Preakness Stakes in 1950.

“He was an excellent thoroughbred breeder, and he loved the sport, so they had lots of very well-known horses,” said W&L associate director of communications and public affairs Julie Campbell, who wrote a book about Virginia horses.

Campbell’s book, “The Horse in Virginia,” was published in the spring. A framed Sports Illustrated cover of Secretariat hangs in her W&L office.
