Patricia is a regular contributor to the Thoroughbred Times and has had photos appear in The Blood-Horse, Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred, The Horse of Delaware Valley, California Thoroughbred and others. She created this tribute to recognize the first time in history that fillies have won three consecutive Horse of the Year titles.

In addition to the horses being sold by their racing trainers, CANTER has some beautiful adoptive placement horses—several of whom have been started under saddle—waiting for great homes!
