CAMDENS JOHN FORT (far left), owner of Peachtree Stable and of Kentucky Oaks winner, Plum Pretty, presents the blanket given to his filly to the staff at Kip Elsers Kirkwood Stables in Camden, which developed Plum Pretty. Pictured, from left, are Fort, Scottie Ottaiano, Elizabeth Fort, Kip Elser, Helen Richards, Ana Martinez, Charles Woods, Alejandro Flores, Kateryna Stolyar and Snag Lee.
It would have been easy for John Fort to have pulled a Linus by taking his blanket and going home with it. Well, Fort did bring the blanket, which was presented to the Peachtree Stables-owned Plum Pretty following her win in the $1 million Kentucky Oaks on May 6, home. But where he brought it and what he did with the blanket might surprise you.
