‘Re-Distribution Of Happiness’ Touches Hearts At Kentucky Horse Racing Commission

A 93-year-old man in a California assisted living facility has a retirement hobby he calls “re-distribution of happiness.” Lowell Joerg made headlines in Lexington (lex18.com) this week when he found a postcard from 1938 depicting the great racehorse Man o’ War, and sent it “home” to the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.

“Too much misery in the world,” Joerg told lex18.com. “Might as well make someone happy.”

KHRC executive director Marc Guilfoil explained that the postcard also shows Man o’ War’s longtime handler, Will Harbut, whose great-grandson Greg Harbut currently serves on the commission. Man o’ War is also buried just a short distance from the commission’s offices.

Guilfoil plans to display the historic postcard, along with Joerg’s hand-written letter, in a prominent place in the KHRC office.
