BACKGROUND: Bev Dee, the founder of Bright Futures Farm, contacted Patricia McQueen last year about one of our permanent residents, Fast Market (Markie), who is the 2nd oldest living son of Secretariat. He was born on February 4, 1986, raced in Canada and the United States, and won his stakes race in Canada's Puss-n-Boots Stakes. Patricia generously made the trip from Boston to our farm in Pennsylvania on December 21st to photograph and write about Markie, since he is one of Secretariat's stakes winners. What a privilege and honor it was to have her visit Bright Futures Farm! We quickly found that Patricia is one of the most–if not THE most–knowledgeable person on all things "Secretariat" as a sire.
MARKIE MUG: Patricia McQueen has generously offered some of her prints of Markie for sale as a fundraiser for Bright Futures Farm. These mugs would be a lovely addition to any racing memorabilia collection or for any horse lover!
All proceeds will benefit the rescue efforts at Bright Futures Farm, home of Fast Market and a trusted 501(c)(3) equine charity.
