Citidancer, one of Maryland's leading sires for years, has been pensioned at the Pons family's Country Life Farm near Bel Air, Md., because of declining fertility.
Joseph Pons Sr. touched a lot of people in his life, from breeders and racetrackers to prisoners he helped rehabilitate at a nearby detention center. Hundreds of those people turned out Monday at the Pons family's Country Life Farm north of Baltimore to celebrate the life of the beloved Marylander who died last Wednesday at the age of 83.
Joseph P. Pons Sr., patriarch of Country Life Farm near Bel Air, Md., died Oct. 12 of a heart attack at his home at the farm.
Michael Flynn, executive vice president of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association, left the organization June 11. Flynn accepted the position earlier this year when Tim Capps resigned to take a position with the Maryland Jockey Club.
