Greatest Horse their ever was or will be. This beautiful horse taught me so much more than him being a winner. He has taught me that true love, caring and hard work does pay off. He will forever be an amazing legacy to so many. Thank you Big Red for showing the world what love and determination can look like if you work hard and love what you are doing!! You will forever be the greatest race horse that has ever lived!!

Happy Belated Birthday Ron, good health to you.

Lived in Toronto in my youth and was thrilled to be at Woodbine to see Big Red run, wish I kept the ticket.
I do have the famous stretch run photo signed by yourself & Penny hanging in the man den. Great memories.

Happy belated birthday, Ron.

I was 12 and living in NYC when that magnificent horse flew you across the finish line at Belmont. My dad turned to my brother and me and said, "We will never see anything like this again."

I salute you and the day that you had Kennedy Airport worried about an equine collision.

With great affection and respect,

Ana Keveney

Hello Ron -

Health and Happiness on your Special Day.
Thank you for playing such an important
roll taking care of Big Red. He is such
an important part of our culture and of

Happy Belated Birthday Ron!! I hope you had a wonderful day! Here's wishing you many good wishes for the coming year.

Thank you for all of the memories. Without you, our Big Red, would never have become the great champion that he was.

Big thrill to help Jocelyn Russell with sculpture of "Big Red" cause I am "Little Red Head" and will be 79 also. We live our lives, hoping we made a difference. You, my friend made a difference the whole world will not forget.
