Keystone Stables, David “Lee” and Emma Reynolds

Hall of Fame Owner
Biography: Emma Reynolds passed away at the age of 87 on July 9, 2012, shortly before her Keystone Stables was nominated for the Parx Racing Hall of Fame. She and her husband, Daniel Lee Reynolds, spent winters in Miami Beach and summers in Saxonburg, PA, near Pittsburgh at their Keystone Stables.

Conley Segraves, a former jockey, was their longtime farm manager. The Reynolds raised their homebreds to race at the Waterford Park, but eventually their trainer Richard Beech set up a division at Keystone which Gary Yager handled. Some of their runners included Classic Steed, who finished second to Deputed Testamony before he won the Preakness, stakes winners Addy Miss and Peppy Addy, the latter who defeated Honest Pleasure at Gulfstream Park. Their sire, Addy Boy, stood at stud along with Steel Curtain at the family farm, and both were bred only to the Reynolds mares.

Although Lee Reynolds passed away in 1988, Mrs. Reynolds continued to raise and race horses on her own for many years.
