Ned Grassi gets the award for most laconic update: “Have seen Nelson and Gephart in Charleston. Fred had an Antarctic adventure with son. Our lives are filled with nature, sports, and friends. Still have our farm in Maryland horse country.” Your secretary also encounters Ned periodically here in Virginia horse country, most recently at the 100th running of the Middleburg Spring Races, the oldest steeplechase in Virginia, where Ned sings at the annual presentation of his family’s Temple Gwathmey Cup.
