Long Description:
Mrs. Henry Carnegie Phipps


An early investor with Andrew Carnegie was Henry Phipps, whose son, Henry Carnegie Phipps, married Gladys Livingston Mills. Mills' ancestors had signed the Declaration of Independence and handled the Louisiana Purchase. As Mrs. Henry Carnegie Phipps, the former Gladys Mills launched a stable with her brother, Secretary of the Treasury Ogden Mills. Her twin sister, Beatrice Lady Granard, raced horses in Europe in partnership with Lord Derby. Mrs. Phipps raced in the name of Wheatley Stable from the 1920s until her death in 1970. She bred Seabiscuit, which was sold to a California horseman and later was the subject of a motion picture. Among the Wheatley champions was Bold Ruler, eight times America's leading stallion and the sire of Secretariat. Bold Ruler and the Phipps mares were stabled at Claiborne Farm, Paris, Ky. Mrs. Phipps' son, Ogden Phipps, launched his own stable in the 1930s and his champions include Buckpasser, Easy Goer, and the unbeaten Personal Ensign. Ogden Phipps and his son, Ogden Mills Phipps, each became chairman of The Jockey Club.
