Thank you so much to everyone who entered our Do You Love Your Thoroughbred photo contest! It's been such a pleasure to see how much all of you love your Thoroughbreds and how your horses love you back. In fact, we here at the MMSC simply couldn't decide which photo we liked best. In our hearts, every one of these photos is precious and deserves to win, which is why we turned to three of our board members and to you as judges. After much forthing and backing and wringing of hands, we are delighted to announce that the winners are:
1st – Melissa Recknor with Meteor Shot and Fly Lite
2nd – Alexandra Smith with Valentine
3rd – Alexandra Smith with Valentine
4th – Christine Hallett with Saratoga Lady '10 aka "Wrigley"
5th – Ashley Paneitz with Peace Cry
The winners will be contacted about their prizes, and we thank Bob Mickler's of Lexington, KY for sponsoring the prizes this year. Thank you all very much for your contributions to our contest! Your generous donations will go toward caring for the wonderful Off-Track Thoroughbreds who are currently in training and eager to start their new careers and find their new homes!
Happy Valentine's Day from the Maker's Mark Secretariat Center!
