Penny Chenery’s passion for Thoroughbred racing permeated her life beyond the racetrack, and she was an active supporter of various efforts that aided the sport’s human and equine athletes. Together with the Tweedy family, the Secretariat Foundation offers the following suggestions for anyone who wishes to honor Penny’s philanthropic vision in their giving.
