Got a chance to mingle and shake his hand after the 1999 Gulfstream Breeders Cup. Will never forget him telling Beverly how Bailey rode a bad race on High Yield in the Juvenile as all the replays were being shown. A gentleman and a fitting honor to have the Santa Catalina renamed for him. www.horse-races.net/library/article-021706.htm
Couldn’t agree more Hoop. I had the fortunate to get to know the Lewises a bit during Silver Charm’s 1997/1998 run as I was often paired to take them around the track at CD or Turfway. I was already a fan of the sport but their kindness in showing an early 20’s kid all about the sport and their wonderful stable put me over the top. I still have a print of Charm with Mr Lewis’ (as Bob and Beverly), Bafftert’s, and Stevens’ signature in a prominent spot in my home today. Total gentleman and all class.
