John Henry Memorial Stakes Race Trophy

In anticipation of the soon (we hope!) to be named John Henry Gr 1 stakes race, Bob C has already designed the trophy to be presented to the winning horse.

Thanks Bob! John will be proud!

John Henry, the Champion in my heart!

You left us nine months ago today. Your beautiful soul entered into Heaven's Celestial paddock at 7:00 p.m. The Lord opened his loving arms.

Our hearts were broken...they still are!!

I think of you daily.

You are ALWAYS in my heart.

You have been busy greeting so many other horses who have lost their lives. Horses that did not get to live a full life as you did. Poor, beautiful, Eight Belles went to the same paddock on May 3, 2008. The loss of her life also broke many, many hearts. She is among Champions!!

Your statue at the Kentucky Horse Park is, hopefully, to be unveiled on the anniversary of your passing: October 8th. I will be there.

Give a chocolate donut kiss to my husband, John.

I have also lit a candle in your memory...

Love always and forever,
Judy G (Burbank, CA)
