did she ever do anything for racing.just asking
She was married to Mr. D and the matriarch of the family. I do not know more, I was not involved in horse racing at the time that she was alive. I have always assumed that Mr. D named this race after her as a way to honor his late wife.
He did not develop the Million, but I think he developed this companion race. As I said, I am not real sure of these details.
