What is Penny Chenery's net worth? Penny Chenery's net worth is $10 million dollars. Born in New Rochelle, New York, Penny Chenery, also known as Helen Bates Chenery Tweedy, was raised in Virginia, and grew up around horses. Her family owned the celebrated Meadow Farm, a thoroughbred racing and horse-breeding farm. After her father became ill, she chose to take over the farm, even though her siblings were against it. Within three years of her taking over, the stable had become profitable again. She gained national attention when her horse, Secretariat, became the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years in 1973. She received numerous racing awards, and, along with Martha F. Gerry, and Allaire du Pont, became one of the first women admitted to The Jockey Club in 1983. She also served as the President of the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association from 1976 to 1984. She received the Eclipse Award of Merit in 2006, and The Arlington Park Penny Chenery Distinguished Woman in Racing Award was established in her honor. In 2010, a film version of her story called, "Secretariat", was released.
Helen Bates "Penny" Chenery Tweedy (born January 27, 1922) is an American sportswoman who bred and raced Secretariat, the 1973 winner of the Triple Crown. The youngest of three children, she graduated from The Madeira School in 1939 and earned a Bachelor of Arts from Smith College, then studied at the Columbia Business School, where she met her future husband, John Tweedy, Sr., a Columbia Law School student. In March 2011, Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia awarded Chenery an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree. Married in May 1949, the couple had four children. In 1973 horseracing telecasts, CBS called her Penny Chenery, not Penny Tweedy.
Penny Chenery, born in 1922, was named Helen Bates Chenery after her mother. The youngest of three children, Penny idolized her father, Chris Chenery, who was the owner of a thoroughbred breeding corporation. Furthermore, Penny loved horses from a young age, something she believed came from her father. "My father really loved horses. I think a parent often communicates his love to a child." Learning to ride at age five, she shared many of her father's interests, and harbored a strong urge to please him. Fulfilling this urge, Penny complied with her father's wishes concerning her education. For high school, she attended Madeira, a school very focused on horses, in Greenway, Virginia. Following her graduation, she attended Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, and studied American history. After graduating in 1943, Penny worked as an assistant for Gibbs and Cox, a company which designed war craft for the Normandy invasion. Subsequent to the invasion, she lost her job, and at the urging of Chris Chenery, Chenery volunteered to join the Red Cross, and traveled to Europe to help wounded soldiers from World War II. When Penny Chenery returned from Europe in 1946, her father encouraged her to advance her education by attending the Columbia School of Business.
