Thanks for posting these pictures of Mr. Marino. I understand John Henry never forgot him, and the two always enjoyed their visits together at the Kentucky Horse Park.

I'm sure John Henry was right there to greet Mr. Marino. They will never be separated again....

Today is Big Cap Day at Santa Anita... JH you will be mentioned at the track for sure. They always mention you on a day like today. Enjoy watching the races from your Heavenly paddock!

Celebrating your birthday with mints and chocolate donuts while still missing you so very much.

Love the pic of Mr. Marino hugging John Henry while holding a baby. Why ole John Henry looked positively easy going there.
