Penny (Tweedy) Chenery, Secretariat's owner & a powerful figure in horse racing, RIP. At age 95 she had a hell of a run, didn't she?

Awful to learn of the passing of Penny Chenery, Secretariat's owner, beloved racing figure, from a stroke at age 95 on Saturday.

Frank Anderson, who photographed iconic Kentucky moments for 42 years, dies at 73
Longtime Herald-Leader photographer Frank Anderson, 73, died Thursday at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.

Anderson was a member of the Lafayette High School camera club when he joined the newspaper staff in 1960, working in the darkroom.

He spent 42 years at the Herald-Leader, photographing the likes of John and Bobby Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon. He regularly captured the horses crossing the finish line at the Kentucky Derby and documented iconic moments in the history of University of Kentucky basketball, including Adolph Rupp’s last game at Memorial Coliseum.

In 2003, Anderson won an Eclipse Award from the National Thoroughbred Racing Association for his photo of a runaway horse bearing down on jockey Patty Cooksey, who lay injured on the track at Keeneland as track personnel tried to help her.

Frank Anderson won the 2003 Eclipse Award for this photo, taken April 12, 2003, at Keeneland Race Track. EMT Will Lockridge (left) and horse ambulance driver Mike Stout, tried to divert the course of Classikas and protect jockey Patti Cooksey, the second-winningest female jockey, after her mount Ide Rather Not, was involved in a three horse spill in the first turn in the first race at Keeneland. In top right is jockey Iosencio Diego that was riding Clasikas. Cooksey broke both legs, her right tibia and left femur. FRANK ANDERSON LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER
I remember that race all too well and remember this incident on the first turn....it was my first race I'd ever seen at Keeneland, it was Bluegrass Stakes day, and I was there with several TBC forum members...was loving being at Keeneland but after seeing this race, which I recall was a middle level claiming race with mainly TP horses, I prayed the day wouldn't get any crazier.

Stakes winner Top Fortitude after breaking down at Belmont during a claiming race.

He was second to Bayern in the 2014 Woody Stephens.

I believe Top Fortitude broke down during a race this last Sunday, not in a workout.

French event rider Maxime Debost was killed during the cross country phase of a CCI* in France. Rotational fall. Both horse and rider were experienced international competitors having twelve years experience at that level
