Special Memories

Harry Aleo
December 7, 1919 – June 21, 2008

How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
             ~William Shakespeare

Once again, GEVA is overwhelmed by the kindness, thoughtfulness, and generosity of Harry Aleo.

In September 2006, when his Eclipse Award winning racehorse, Lost in the Fog, succumbed to cancer, Harry requested that those wishing to honor the Fog’s life send a donation to GEVA.

And then again in June 2008, aware his own death from cancer was imminent, Harry requested that those wishing to express their appreciation of his life send a donation to GEVA.

In the face of such generosity, such greatness of heart, we find ourselves at an utter loss. How can we ever adequately thank this extraordinary man who, not once but twice, remembered, and asked the world to remember, racehorses less fortunate, less fast, less sound than his own? Our hearts are so full words fail us completely.

Know, Harry, that we at GEVA will never forget you. 

What a bright light you were. What a bright light you are. What a bright light you will always be.

Lost in the Fog
GEVA laments the death of the noble and courageous champion "Lost in the Fog", the Eclipse Award Sprint Winner in 2006. We extend our sincere condolences to Harry Aleo, his wonderful owner, Greg Gilchrist, his daily friend and trainer, and all of the connections of this beloved horse. We admire and thank them for their total consideration for the well-being of their horse.

GEVA extends its deep appreciation of the generosity and support shown by Harry Aleo and Greg Gilchrist in their request that donations made in memory of "Lost in the Fog" be made to GEVA for the retired and rehabilitating horses at the farm. GEVA also thanks each and every person or organization who has made a donation to GEVA in loving memory of this talented champion.

And last but not least, thank you to "Lost in the Fog" for the wonderful memories he left with us all.

Death is not extinguishing
the light;
it is putting out the lamp
dawn has come.

~Rabindranath Tagore
