Not sure what to say?

My father taught him about steeplechasing.

Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your loved one. May the wonderful memories of your loved one continue to provide your family a small measure of comfort until God's promises are fulfilled. Matthew 5:5

I'm deeply saddened to learn of Ned's passing. It was an honor to have known and worked with him during the time I was the Counsel for the Ky. Racing Commission. He was a legal giant in his legal specialty and was recognized nationally. The thoroughbred industry has lost a great leader, as have we all.

My sincere condolences to Nina and the Bonnie family. Ned's life and work honored the great Athenian tradition of making our world much the better for having been here.

My Condolences To The Family;
I'm so sorry for your great loss. May all of the beautiful memories that you all shared with your loved one, bring you all some comfort when sadness sets in.

" NED " was great man and will be milled by all. my loving thoughts are with his family.

What a tremendous loss! He certainly was one of a kind. My thoughts and prayers are with his, and our, beloved Nina and boys.Deepest love and sympathy,Virginia Guest Valentine

I am so sorry for this loss of a dear friend and mentor and my prayers go out to Nina and the entire Family. I will be unable to attend the services as I will be out of country. I will miss him very much as I know many in the horse world will as well.

Ned was an immensely caring person, a constructive force and a wonderful friend.
We will miss him greatly.
Our heartfelt sympathy to Nina and the family.
He has passed but will not be forgotten.

Over a period of many years I had the pleasure of speaking and dealing with Ned on matters in Thoroughbred Racing. He was a true man of integrity who was passionate about proper horse racing conduct especially in the areas of drug administrations and post race testing. These interests were matched by his unfailing courtesy to other people. Racing has lost a real gentleman and friend of the sport. RIP.
