VANDERBILT STABLES
February 28, 1955
Gleaming white and red like the colors of the famous Vanderbilt racing silks, Sagamore Farm, Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt's stables, lies in the softly rolling countryside of Glyndon, Md. The barns and paddocks hum with the activity of training and tending the 100-odd Vanderbilt horses that are quartered there, and in these paintings Artist Vaughn Flannery has captured the tempo, the brilliant colors, the shimmer of sunlight and shadow in the stable area. This is the home to which the great-hearted gray, Native Dancer, recently returned when injury forced his retirement. He occupies a stall in the stallion barn next to his illustrious grandsire, Discovery, a handsome veteran of 23 years, and like him enjoys a leisure life.
