PENNY CHENERY

1922-2017



All of us at Claiborne Farm are saddened by the loss of Penny Chenery. Her determination, passion and love of horses will forever be remembered. She was a true pioneer who raised the bar for so many of us. We are grateful for the opportunity she gave us to stand Secretariat and for all the contributions she made to the Thoroughbred industry. Much like Secretariat, she will always be remembered for her big heart, tremendous strides, and proclivity to overcome all odds.
