Landrum landmark finds new home

Published 3:39 pm Thursday, September 9, 2010

The life size bronze statue of a horse and jockey outside of Stone Soup Market & Caf will be moving this week to a new home. The statue will reside in a private garden and serve as a remembrance to the new owners recently deceased father.

The new owner of the statue and his father spent many meaningful moments enjoying their time together at several of the thoroughbred racing tracks around the country including the Breeders Cup at Santa Anita. His father was quite successful at handicapping the horses and believed it was bad karma to keep all the winnings to himself so he shared his winnings with friends who joined him at the track.

Stone Soup invite the community to give their input on what they think should take the place of the bronze statue. The location of the statue is the gateway to the city of Landrum and this landmark should represent the community. Give your ideas to your server or contact Suzanne Strickland directly.
