Lee & Friends

Posted By on August 7, 2012

From left to right Vicki St Clair, one of the Joe Lempki chimps, and Lee Noblitt. I first met Lee back in the early 1960’s. He was and still is a soft talking easy going country boy, always ready to lend a hand. His ambition is animals, wild or domestic handling and performing. For the most part he is out of the business now, but not out of the animal business. Lee is a very successful breeder and trainer of thoroughbred race horses. His ranch is in southern California where he races his horses at the major race tracks. Now and again I will give him a call to say hello and maybe………… get a tip on the next race.

    This photo was taken on my dads’ show in about 1962. I didn’t know Lee( I was living in Spain at this time) but do recognize the float. It was part of the “Storybook Land” spec. Other pics of those floats are among the pics. I provided and you posted earlier.
    Thank you Ivan.

    Would like to talk to you about Lee Noblitt and hopefully receive contact info for him as I have been trying to locate him for some time now. Spoke with John Cuneo, but he was of no help to me. I am praying that you can put me in touch with him.

    Thank you for your cooperation and attention to this matter…I can share more details via personal private email as to why I urgently need to get in contact with Lee.
