Astride on Michigan Avenue

Mayor Jane Byrne, decked out for riding, waves as she rides "Pax," a Chicago Mounted Patrol quarter horse, down Michigan Avenue in 1981. She joined racehorses, ponies and the elegant Clydesdales in the parade, the first event in the week's Equestrian Festival. The Arlington Million thoroughbred race at the Arlington Park Racetrack on Sunday will be the grand finale. José Moré, Chicago Tribune
