Elizabeth Anne Gillespie is a former competitive polo player and grew up riding off-track Thoroughbreds as hunters/jumpers. She passionately supports Thoroughbred aftercare initiatives, recently traveling in a vintage Rolls-Royce to raffle off for the benefit of the Retired Racehorse Project. In her barn currently is a handsome and promising OTTB gelding by Kantharos training for a career in show jumping.
