Horse Racing's Living History Museum

Old Friends provides a dignified retirement to Thoroughbreds whose racing and breeding careers have come to an end. By promoting these one-time celebrated horses through a campaign of education and tourism, we hope to raise awareness of  all equines in need.   Learn more about us here.

LITTLE SILVER CHARM
- THE BOOK

Little Silver Charm is an imaginative, engaging book, filled with charming characters—old friends and some new ones, too—along with an incorrigible villain to add spice to the mix. Goodness and love triumph in the end, of course, as they forever should.
- Bill Mooney, Eclipse Award-winning turf writer
