    Joe was the consummate gentle-man who was a great ambassador for Claiborne Farm and the racing industry, but the tourist industry as well. Joe must have welcomed millions to Claiborne wowing all of them with history, stories “from the shed” and opportunities to interact with his equine charges that left indelible memories for visitors from around the world! RIP Joe! You set the gold standard for others to aspire to…..
