Though Secretariat will always be Meadow Stable’s brightest star, another horse deserves the credit for keeping the stable running in the early 1970s—Riva Ridge. The Blood-Horse’s senior correspondent Steve Haskin tells how Riva Ridge put a struggling racing stable back on firm footing and gave a young owner named Penny Chenery a valuable education that allowed her to later manage the career of a Triple Crown winner.
