“As I looked around the chapel, I was wondering where the horses were tended to. I almost expected to see a place for horses to drop by and visit. I asked Ken if he ever blessed the animals like the St. Francis Blessing of the Animals.”
Julie June Stewart, in her article for “The Rail”, muses on where Churchill Downs chaplain Ken Boehm conducted the equine part of his ministry. Julie’s article is recommended for all who love horses, have any interest in the horse racing industry, or wonder if those on the backside of America’s tracks see the horses as tools or blessings.
