Who’s Zippy Chippy?

Zippy Chippy is one of the more noteworthy retirees of the Old Friends lineup of champions. While he never wone a race – not once – he tried to 100 times. Those famous Kentucky Derby winners? Those dudes maybe run, 10-12 races and bingo off they go to the breeding shed to relax with the ladies ifyoucatchmydrift. Not ol’ Z-C. He kept campaigning for a win. Race after race; track after track. He never gave up. Talk about a guy who’s earned his retirement!

Dream Chaser

Well he’s now got a forever home in the pastures and run-ins of the Old Friends farms. Usually he’s at the one in on the east coast – where he did most of his racing, but for a vacation this summer he’s at Dream Chaser farm in Georgetown Kentucky – which is in MY neighborhood! To celebrate they’re doing a special fundraiser for the Zipster called “Zipping for Zippy Chippy”. I’ve been invited to participate. Well, my mini-me has.


Here’s the deal

My mini-me will be with a dozen people who will be ziplining in a giant cavern underneath Luoisville, Kentucky on September 8. The fine folks at the MegaCavern have offered a series of free zips to help raise funds for Zippy.
