ROGER MEETS HIS MATCH
Roger Penske (left), son of the late, great, Lassinagh Silky and prolific sire Flying Penske, goes nose to toes with his Mini Me. This paper mache statue, made by Vermont artist Terri Malloy, is the spittin' image of Roger. And why not? He was the model! The piece was created and donated to commemorate Make Peace With Animals' 25th Annual Homecoming. Luckily for Roger, his adopter had the winning bid at the silent auction.
