Biography
Living in Brooklyn, I don't know how I found a passion for horses, but it's been there since I can remember. The horse that got me involved with racing was Carry Back...so it's been nearly a life long love for me. When we moved from Brooklyn to Elmont, NY, and I first saw Belmont Park, that was it...all I wanted was to work there...and I did. My years at Belmont were a dream come true, and after decades, I still miss it, it was the best, and I hold onto incedible memories. I've lived in many states, one of my favorites was Florida, where I worked on a TB breeding farm in Ocala...and that sparked another dream, to have my own broodmares...I adore the foals. That dream was made possibe because of a great TB chanmpion, Foolish Pleasure...we were at Belmont together and little did we know, decades after we both left the track, we'd meet again...in, of all places, Wyoming!! His owners gave me some mares and I started my business; Foolish Dream Farm. I had a great run with it, selling the foals as weanlings, high dollar babies, my mares were wonderful producers...I bred them to Quarter Horse stallions, and every baby I raised found an excellent home. I retired the mares several years ago. I have a very strong passion for broodmares, I adore them...they are very special and the bond you form with the ones you own is so strong.
I wound up here in Wyoming a very long time ago, met my husband of 25 years, raised two sons, we now have 5 grandkids...we farm for a living, growing sugar beets, malt barley and hay...we live in a gloroius area, surrounded by mountains. I still have horses, ride and we love spending time on the mountains here when ever we can.
