Genuine FROM PAGE B3 flown to a life in Ireland and back again to Kentucky that she deliv- ered her first live foal by the stal- lion Rahy. She was 16 years old when she delivered her first colt. Only two days after he was foaled, the colt had a baseball- size mass removed from his co- lon. The little colt was named Genuine Reward... but he nev- er raced. Genuine Risk would de- liver only one other foal, a colt named Count Our Blessing . . . but he never raced, either. At age 23, Geriuine Risk was brought to the Newstead Farm m Loudoun County to live out her days. Diana often rode her over the Hunt Country paths and pas- tures of the area. . Through the years, Genuine Risk had a slow flow of visitors to her special stable at Newstead. Chil- d[en could be photographed with her and an attendant would provide peppermints that visitors could give the docile Genuine Risk. Newstead was often on the list of Hunt Country farms and stables that could be visited by the public, and the slightly graying mane of the still-regal chestnut could be seen from five-feet away. At age 31, she passed away on August 18, 2008 in her heated stall at Newstead Farm. She was a quiet and much-ac- complished filly for four years of her life. The last 27 years had been marked by some disappoint- ments and too many "what-if's'. But Diana Firestone had been the best of owners and she saw to it first-hand that Genuine Risk had the best of treatment in her pen- sioned years in Loudoun County.
