On Thanksgiving 2018, Trappe Hill Farm co-owner, Virginia Hunt Country booster, former corporate CEO, and, yes, former Reagan administration official Bruce Smart passed away.
While I was working on my post about Genuine Risk, I had been clicking over to Facebook only to see another horseman posting condolences about Bruce Smart passing away.
I’d met Bruce almost ten years ago on the same day I visited Genuine Risk’s grave in 2009. On that day, I had no idea Bruce was such a big deal in horse country and what impact meeting him would have on my interests.
