Big, bad and beautiful, that is Mean Mary. I find her rather endearing but when horses like peppermints and you are feeding them they do tend to be your best friends! She has mellowed a bit as she’s progressed in life and unlike many of our horses who like to sit off the pace, she wants to be up there so she’s in control.
SO many congratulations to Mr. Alex Campbell, Jr. who bred her and after rather a nasty fall earlier this week was going to go to the races come hell or high water! His son Zandy was there too to greet their newest Graded Stakes winner. Mr. Campbell has built up a tremendous broodmare band over the years and the families are still going strong!
Not to forget Touriga (BRZ) who ran a great race to finish third.
