Parker was known for her pedigree analysis and also wrote a non-fiction book on the horse Round Table. She served as an editor for publications such as American Turf Monthly, California Thoroughbred, The Northern California Thoroughbred and Washington Thoroughbred. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to Old Friends or PAWS. There will be no services.
