The horse? He’s the second oldest resident of the Hall of Champions at KHP. The gentleman? He’s among the oldest employees of KHP and has direct connections to one of the legends of the park. His father was a jockey who rode Man o’ War, one of the greatest race horses in history. The gentleman himself was an exercise rider/handler for the same horse.
It was both a pleasure and an honor to meet this man and hear his story during my visit. It was one of life’s special moments.
