At the 2009 Saratoga Dew Stakes in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., a race for New York–bred fillies and mares, the smart money proved to be on Dean Henry, a 4-year-old named in honor of CALS Dean Susan Henry.

The filly, owned and bred by Larry Goichman ’66, rallied from two lengths behind in the homestretch to win in a thrilling photo finish, capturing her first-ever stakes race victory. After winning by a head, Dean Henry has now crossed the line first in three of her eight career starts.

“I know she’s a closer,” Goichman told The Saratogian after the Aug. 31 race. “She made a big, big run.”
