Welcome to the Black Gold Legacy, LLC web site dedicated to the memory of
Black Gold, the four time derby winner of the Louisiana, Kentucky, Ohio and
Chicago, in 1924 and his owner,  Rosa Magnet Hoots, an American Indian and
the second woman, to ever own a racehorse to win the storied “Run for the
Roses.”  

The R. W. Freeman family represents the direct line of descendants
to Rosa Magnet Hoots:  i.e. Rosa’s grandson, great-grandchildren
and great-great grandchildren.  

The formation of Black Gold Legacy, LLC, to honor the memory of
Black Gold and Rosa Hoots was initiated in time for the Louisiana
Derby run on March 12, 2005.  We are excited to announce the
availability of the classic merchandise to offer to family and friends
alike, to remember Black Gold and his incredible legacy.  It  has
been produced and is ready for purchase on this
web site and is constantly being expanded and updated.  

Members of our family will be in attendance at most major events
and look forward to meeting with you to share racing memories and
stories.  We can provide personal endorsements to each item as a
means of provenance.  

Please bookmark this site and monitor it regularly.

To the Memory of Black Gold, the 1924 four derby winner and horse
with “an indomitable spirit” and to Rosa Magnet Hoots…

Respectfully,

The R. W. Freeman Family

"Good people leave an inheritance to
their grandchildren."

Proverbs 13:22

Rosa, in the Courier Journal, May
1924 stated, “I will give the
trophies to my grandchildren, for
them to always keep.”  While all
four trophies were stolen from
Rosa’s home in Tulsa, OK back in
the 1930’s , the family continues to
stay vigilant to help recover them
so this wish of
Rosa’s can finally become a
reality.”
In the word “GOLD” note the
difference in the highlighting of the
letters “GOD,” to acknowledge God’
s blessings in providing the talents
and gifts with which we have been
blessed.
