The Reds’ Rose, Flynn visit Keeneland, 1976

Posted on October 26, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

During Keeneland’s fall meet in October 1976, two members of the Cincinnati’s Big Red Machine, Pete Rose and Doug Flynn, paid a visit to the Lexington track. The Reds had just won the National League Championship Series against the Philadelphia Phillies and were about to make history in the World Series, sweeping the New York Yankees in four games, to win back-to-back World Series. The group at Keeneland included, from left, Flynn, the Red’s utility infielder, Mario Nunez, a friend of Rose’s, known as The Cuban, Tom Hammond, then sports director for WLEX-TV, Teri Rubio, a friend of Rose’s, and Rose, one of the stars of the Big Red Machine.
