A Day at the Races


By Ted Boscia

Dean Henry, a 4-year-old filly named in honor of CALS Dean Susan Henry, graduated into the winner's circle at the Aug. 31 Saratoga Dew Stakes. Owned and bred by Larry Goichman '66, Dean Henry, number two, closed strong and nosed out a win in a thrilling photo finish to earn her first-ever stakes race victory.

Goichman, a longtime Cornell University supporter, has been breeding and racing thoroughbreds for many years, naming several of them in honor of Cornell people and landmarks, such as Willard Straight, Anabel Taylor, Sage Chapel, and Beebe Lake.
