Old Friends elected owner/breeder Susan Chu to its Board of Directors Mar. 9. Chu and her husband have campaigned the likes of champion Drefong (Gio Ponti) and MGISW Bast (Uncle Mo) under the Baoma Corp. banner.
“I am honored to be able to participate in such a worthwhile organization,” said Chu. “Old Friends contributes so much to the welfare of these incredible retired Thoroughbreds.”
Chu will join current Old Friends board members: President Michael Blowen, Vice President Bill Vandendool, Chairman Cynthia Grisolia, Secretary Barbara Fossum, Treasurer Mark Otto, and voting members Jill Baffert, Peggy Gdovka, Corey Johnsen, Suzanne Mundy, Clark Nyberg, Dr. John Park, Mark Simon, Ron Wallace, and Diane White.
“We are so thrilled that Susan has joined in our mission,” said Old Friends founder and President Michael Blowen. “She has incredible insight as a Thoroughbred breeder and owner, and is committed and passionate about the issue of aftercare. We look forward to her contributions”
