Here are some of the remembrances shared on Memorial Day.
We will always remember and love our Buckeye Buddy, Catlaunch. Such a big beautiful, gentle, loveable horse. I believe he always remembered me our 2 visits a year.
– Barb & Ron Atherton
Come on Flip
His face … I loved his face!
And so much more!

I will miss coming to visit Tinners Way. It brought me great joy to meet one of Secretariat’s own. Tinners was always quiet, but enjoyed the carrots we brought. When I visited him last year in May, his eyes told me it wouldn’t be much longer. His time served was almost done. To Tinners … may you rest in peace!
– Cindy & Darrel Duke
You were such a thrill to watch on the track – a super star! I wanted so much to see you at Old Friends, but it was not to be. You are loved & always remembered.

As a volunteer of the Kentucky Derby museum, I will never forget getting to see him every time I volunteered. Thanks so much for this service & taking care of him.
