Santa Anita | Benoit

Mandy Lynn Delahoussaye, daughter of retired Hall of Fame jockey Eddie Delahoussaye and his wife Juanita, succumbed to a series of ailments this past Friday at age 47. Mandy, whose aunt, Rose Ann Delahoussaye, was her primary nanny and “Second Momma,” was known to racegoers at Santa Anita, Hollywood Park and Del Mar, as she often accompanied her family prior to moving to Louisiana from Arcadia in 2014.

“Mandy was an Angel sent from God to show us the world through her precious, innocent eyes,” reads an obituary posted by her family at “When asked, 'Mandy, who you betting on?' She would reply, 'Eddie D!' Mandy loved to bowl, Cajun dance, loved country music and chocolate chip cookies. She could have eaten shrimp every which way, every meal, every day. Mandy loved Christmas and Halloween and anything that involved cake. She loved Lucy, Golden Girls, Little House on the Prairie and last but not least, Everybody Loves Raymond. She will be missed by all who knew her and were blessed to see her smile. Rings on her fingers, bells on her toes, she shall have music wherever she goes.”

Mandy Delahoussaye is survived by family that includes her parents, brother Loren and aunt Rose Ann, as well as longtime close friends Dot and Ray Sibille. Memorial services are scheduled for Wednesday at Martin & Castille Funeral Home in Lafayette at 1 p.m. CT.
