Barbara D. Livingston's Loving Tribute to Racing's Remarkable Retirees

Lexington, KY August 14, 2002 Eclipse Press announces publication of Old Friends Visits With My Favorite Thoroughbreds.

Barbara D. Livingston’s Old Friends combines her photos and essays to share her passion for aging Thoroughbreds, horses that once commanded center stage but often become almost invisible with time, except to those who love them. Through her words, Livingston recounts their storied pasts; through her lens, Livingston finds the spark that momentarily clears their eyes and rekindles the fire of youth or just stirs the embers of their glory days.

Old Friends is a heartfelt tribute to the life of a Thoroughbred beyond the racetrack and breeding shed the season of life that, perhaps, is the most overlooked.

Livingston’s photographs are among the most recognizable in Thoroughbred racing. The clarity, mood, and uniqueness of each moment she captures have made her a regular contributor to many publications, including The Blood-Horse. She has won two Eclipse Awards for outstanding photography and numerous other awards. Livingston’s work also has appeared in Newsweek, People, Cigar Aficionado, GQ, and on the cover of TV Guide.

Her first book of photographs, Four Seasons of Racing, was published in 1998. Livingston lives in Saratoga Springs, New York.
