Trophies, Memorabilia from Rubin Family Estate being Donated to the Park
On the occasion of racing legend John Henry?s 32nd birthday, the Kentucky Horse Park announced that it will soon receive the grand horse?s racing collection from the Rubin family estate.
At John Henry?s birthday party, John Nicholson, executive director of the Kentucky Horse Park declared, ?More than two decades ago, Sam and Dorothy Rubin of Dotsam Stables gave the Kentucky Horse Park one of its greatest blessings when they sent John Henry to live here. Now I have the very happy duty of announcing that the heirs of the Rubin family estate have also done something wonderful for our park by donating the family?s cherished collection of John Henry?s racing memorabilia to our International Museum of the Horse. It has been our great privilege to be John Henry?s stewards all these years, and now we?ll have this fine collection on permanent display in our museum to tell the story of his unparalleled racing accomplishments.?
The first portion of the collection is expected be shipped to the Kentucky Horse Park in the near future. It is undetermined at this time when the collection will go on display for the public.
