Meet Mary Dixon Reynolds



Mary Dixon Reynolds’ passion for horses began at an early age. She grew up riding, showing, and training Arabians.The great Curlin brought her into horse racing and the celebrated filly, Rachel Alexandra, solidified her love of the sport, with its tradition, steeped in history. An amateur handicapper who had beginner's luck during her first outing to a racetrack, the now defunct, Colonial Downs, near Richmond, Va.


From a small town in the the Tar Heel state, Mary Dixon studied English literature and journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for three years before graduating at Guilford College. She shares a passion for F. Scott Fitzgerald with her favorite writer, William L. Nack, whose books she possesses and are well worn from rereading.


Her love of sports was instilled in her by her physician father as they attended basketball and football games at his alma mater, Wake Forest University. She continues to follow the Wake Forest University Demon Deacons and the University of North Carolina Tar Heels as well as the Carolina Panthers and San Antonio Spurs.


Mary Dixon first appeared on Horse Racing Nation as a guest columnist, writing articles about California Chrome, his fan base and Songbird. She aspires to bring new people into our sport and to promote thoroughbred aftercare, recognizing that for our sport to thrive, we must take care of our athletes after they leave the track
