Native Dancer
May 04, 1959
At Home in his Sagamore Farm, Maryland paddock, Native Dancer seemed laughingly unaware last week of his eminence in one of the higher art forms. Now a husky 9-year-old, the Dancer has added 200 pounds since the days when he was barreling down the stretch and thrusting his gray nose in front. Like most grays, he has become nearly white with full maturity; this season he will be sending his second crop of sons and daughters to the races.
