Ann Landers visits Lexington, 1958

Posted on November 18, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

Columnist Ann Landers and Fred B. Wachs, general manager of the Herald-Leader, shown just after Wachs presented Landers with an ash tray fashioned from a shoe from Faultless, one of the Calumet Farm’s thoroughbred racehorses. Faultless won the Blue Grass Stakes, finished third in the Kentucky Derby and won the Preakness. Wachs presented the gift on December 11, 1958, at a Phoenix Hotel dinner given by the newspaper. He said the shoe from “Faultless” out of “Unerring” was an appropriate gift for the popular columnist. Landers was in Lexington for two speaking engagements, one at Henry Clay High School and the second at the University of Kentucky Guignol Theater. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
