On this day, the Pony Racing community gathered in Borris to mark a poignant moment in their history. The occasion was the first Pony Racing meeting since its suspension last year, and it was an opportunity for riders and friends to pay tribute to a beloved member of their community Jack DeBromhead who had tragically passed away.
As the riders, trainers, and supporters came together, they observed a moment of silence to honor the memory of their fallen comrade. This solemn moment allowed everyone to reflect on the joy and camaraderie that Jack brought to the sport, and how his presence will be greatly missed.
In a touching tribute, the community also released a series of balloons into the sky, each representing a cherished memory or thought of the rider. The balloons were a symbol of the love and respect that Jack had earned throughout his time in the Pony Racing community.
This emotional ceremony was a testament to the enduring bond that exists between members of the Pony Racing community. Despite the challenges and difficulties they have faced, they have come together to support each other and honor the memory of their fallen family member Jack DeBromhead.
As the Pony Racing season continues, this touching tribute will serve as a reminder of the deep connections that exist within this community. It is a powerful reminder that, while the sport of Pony Racing may be about competition and performance, it is ultimately the relationships between riders, trainers, and supporters that make it truly special.
