Thank you for all you did for racing and, especially, the women who wanted to participate in the sport.

I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Sad news indeed, but what a wonderful and productive life. She was a determined soul, and that toughness paid off in abundance. Condolences to her family and friends.

RIP Penny Chenery. You and that red horse of yours will never be forgotten...

Saddened to learn of her passing.

Like John Nerud, it just kind of felt like she would be around forever.

What tremendous contributions she made to the sport, and to the future of its women in general.

A truly great woman, for sure. Among her many charitable works, Penny Chenery started the laminitis endowment with the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation, Inc. Although Secretariat died too young of this terrible disease, horses are increasingly being saved and go on to productive lives after surviving laminitis. The research Penny Chenery sponsored in the name of her legendary champion will continue to benefit horses and everyone connected with them. The sport needs more people like her.

Rest in peace, ma'am. You did good. And now I like to imagine you, your dad and the magnificent horses he bred are enjoying heavenly meadows.

My heart breaks hearing this. But she lived a long successful life and made one of the largest impacts on this sport and a huge impact for women. Rip. Her legacy has long been cemented.
