Jay Sanders died December 20, 2001 from a lengthy battle with cancer. At the age of 79, he continued to come to the barn twice weekly to see his horses. He had been a customer of Bill Cantrell Stables, Inc. for 20 years. Earlier in his life, he showed his horses but for the past five years, he enjoyed seeing others ride his horses. His pride and joy was Generously, a brood mare that produced him three beautiful foals. “Mr. Jay” will be missed.
