Jack Le Goff Honored at USET Foundation Memorial Gathering
Tuesday, October 20, 2009
The USET Foundation’s historic building in Gladstone, NJ has never looked better and seemed an unintentional testimony to Le Goff’s stringent horse keeping standards. Freshly painted and stained stalls all bore the names of Olympic gold greats turned out by Jack. Bally Cor, Better and Better and Irish Cap to name a few.
Centered in the rotunda was a display with Jack’s French Military uniform, old photographs from his days at Saumur, a glass of champagne and of course, a pack of his ever present cigarettes. Enlarged photos decorated the walls as a historic slide show played to French war era music.
No one turned out more gold medals for the USET than Jack Le Goff as he truly put the United States on the World map as a force to be reckoned with. Gold medalists and former team members in addition to Coffin, Wofford and O’Connor attendance included; Karen Stives, Mike Huber, Kerry Millikin, Torrence Watkins, Karen O’Connor, and Grant Schneidman Kim Walnes, to name a few. It was a virtual Who’s Who in Eventing.
Adieu old friend.
