Native Dancers

In 1953 Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt's great gray stallion, Native Dancer, captured the public imagination as have few other Thoroughbreds. Now he has given his name to George Balanchine's new ballet, the first inspired by horse racing. The star of the ballet is a pretty filly named Patricia Wilde, shown doing a passé en dedans in the arms of Jockey Jacques d'Amboise, as horseless riders Gayle Young, Bengt Anderson and William Weslow assist.
