The Red Mile mourns the passing of a great friend and benefactor in Henry D. Mayer. Mr. Mayer passed away on December 29, 2012 at age 85 with his loving wife Patricia at his side.

  Harness racing, particularly the Grand Circuit in Lexington, was his passion. Mr. Mayer spent many an afternoon with Patricia in his railbird box seats trackside at The Red Mile. He also enjoyed attending and participating in the yearling sales as a part of the Lexington experience each fall.

  Over the years Mr. Mayer held a stake in a number of top horses, listing the immortal Niatross and McKinzie Almahurst among the most notable. His trainers were the sport's elite, counting W.R. Haughton and George Sholty among them.

  At the time of his death, Henry and Patricia were training several horses with their good friend, Hall of Famer Jim Doherty.

  Always a study in style and grace, Henry Mayer will be sorely missed by all that knew him and leave an empty space in the heart of his friends here at The Red Mile.
