The Final Call John Henry by Fred Stone
AND THE YEARS DWINDLE DOWN
It won’t be long before the old warrior will hear the distant call to the post, a sound he had heard so long ago. He will come home now, one last time, to that familiar roar of the crowd and run his final race.
In the early 80’s, there came a champion to represent the working class and the poor, disenfranchised people of this land. He was a small, older gelding named John Henry. He came from the wrong side of the tracks. A son of Old Bob Bowers, whose stud fee was only $2,500.00, John Henry captured the hearts and minds of the poor, as well as the rich, and the famous.
And now he waits. He is fragile and looks even smaller, but, if you look closely, you might see the giant that once lived in that body.
