Joe Cain day at Ellis Park

Opening day at Ellis Park is a special day for the local community, and when it happens to be on July 4 it makes it even better. The local horsemen wanted to take this opportunity to recognize Joe Cain, a long time horseman with strong ties to Ellis Park.




Joe is battling Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (A.L.S.) also recognized as Lou Gehrig's disease. Even so he has not lost his enthusiasm for horse racing. He and his wife, Peggy, continue to oversee a large racing stable.

Prior to the races on opening day, Mike Bruder, KHBPA Director, and Chairman of the Ellis Park Horsemen's Committee organized an event in the track kitchen to honor Joe. Friends attended, many wanting to take the opportunity to share stories and experiences they have had with Joe.

The KHBPA recognized Joe with a plaque for his distinguished service to his fellow horsemen, and Larry Jones, who also attended, commented that "Joe is a good friend and fierce competitor."

Billy and Carol Tucker presented Joe with a beautiful portrait of Joe and their horse, "Private Horde," who Joe successfully trained during his stellar career.

The day ended with a blanket presentation in Joe's honor following the second race.

During the event, more than two thousand dollars was raised for A.L.S. research.

Donations can be made, in Joe's honor, to:

John Griffith, Secretary-Treasurer, Eclipses 20 Years
with the Kentucky HBPA

Friday, May 23, 2008 marked the 20-year anniversary of John Griffith, secretary-treasurer of the Kentucky HBPA.



"He has been a valuable asset to the organization," commented Kentucky HBPA President Rick Hiles. "We have been extremely fortunate to be able to utilize John not only as a tremendous source of figures and accounting, but also as Marty's assistant.

Several members of the Board and horsemen attended a fete in Johnís honor in Donamireís suite at Churchill Downs. In addition, a race was named in his honor, and he received an expense-paid trip in appreciation of his valuable years of service.
