Speaking of fast-moving, Marylou Whitney is a little hard to keep straight too, but we do know -- huzzah, huzzah -- that she is giving a dinner dance Saturday night at the Everglades Club in Palm Beach honor- ing His Highness The Maharajah of Jaipur, may his tribe increase. The Maharajah is the honorary international chairman of the American Red Cross benefit luncheon Sunday at the Palm Beach Polo and Country Club. Gale Sorenson Brophy, a top horse breeder and racer, is the chairman of the luncheon and she's expecting 600, give or take a few. As for the national honorary chairmen -- they include Joan Bove, Eles Gillet, Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Straub, the new owners of the Palm Beach Polo and Country Club, and, of course, la Marylou.
As for Gale Brophy, she and her husband, Giles Brophy, are the proud owners of "Thirty Six Red," the third best three-year-old in 1990, and their "Strike The Gold" won the Blue Grass Stakes and then went on to win the 1991 Kentucky Derby, place second in the Belmont and achieve a place in racing history. So when Palm Beachers refer to Gale as a top breeder and racer they would like you to know they are not just talking crepes Suzette.
