This summer the remains of the world-famous, champion racehorse Noor were removed from Grass Valley — with the ongoing threat of the horse track being turned into a business park at Loma Rica Ranch — and transferred to a cemetery in Georgetown, Kentucky, called Old Friends.
The story of Noor’s plight was first told here and later became a national story, reported in the L.A. Times, Daily Racing Form and elsewhere. But it had a happy ending.
Here’s a photo posted by a Facebook friend this week with this caption: “Another view of Noor’s birch tree, sent to Old Friends by Dell Hancock of Claiborne Farm, in honor of Noor and his sire, Nasrullah. Our thanks to Barbara Fossum for providing the picture and to Charlotte Farmer for sending it to us.”
Readers commented: “It should be beautiful come spring – all the bulbs they planted will be gorgeous!”
And “Fit for a Champion! I think Noor would like it.” You can also see a Christmas wreath.
