Henry Q in the 2023 Preakness
Henry Q is one of the more veteran horses competing in the 2023 Preakness field, being sired by Blame and trained by Doug O’Neill.
Todd Fincher had an unforgettable afternoon at Sunland Park on Saturday as he won four races – highlighted by Henry Q’s 14 3/4-length victory in the Mine That Bird Derby Feb 28.
Early Life and Education
Henry Q is currently tied for fourth in betting odds to win the Preakness, yet enters with an experienced jockey and trainer, providing him a solid chance at victory at Baltimore. Since Kentucky Derby he hasn’t taken any steps backward, giving him every opportunity to reach victory this time around.
Early in his career, he worked as a clerk at Boston Latin Grammar School while simultaneously working as an apprentice bookbinder to support his mother. Later on he retrained as an adult psychiatrist, treating casualties of World War II such as German prisoners of war.
He engaged in group dynamics and sensitivity training to gain a better understanding of community. While undertaking this training, he met Virginia Codington who would become his wife and the mother to his four sons.
Henry represents clients in complex litigation matters, such as class actions and multidistrict litigation (MDLs). He has established an impressive record in successfully representing client interests in numerous consumer protection and antitrust disputes as well as providing strategic counsel on various complex business issues.
At 4/1 odds for the 2023 Preakness odds, Confidence Game and National Treasure are tied in fourth position; but, like them, he boasts an excellent pedigree. His sire, Blame won the Mine That Bird Derby late February; furthermore, Todd Fincher trained four stakes winners this year – all positive indicators.
He specializes in representing clients in complex legal matters, such as guardianship, special needs trusts, probate administration, modest to high net worth estate administration uncontested and litigated cases across Texas.
Achievement and Honors
Henry was awarded this recognition “for his extraordinary civic service and commitment to improving the quality of life in his community”. He is the first mechanical engineer ever honored with this award by NSF.
Todd Fincher made history on Tuesday at Sunland Park by winning six races – four stakes events included. Henry Q’s 14 3/4-length victory in the Mine That Bird Derby proved decisive as Blame has now gone 2-for-4 for $91,740 total earnings.
Every year, the Henry Awards nominations bring with them an unofficial list of notable omissions. In 2017, Phamaly Theater Company’s production of Into the Woods received eight nominations but wasn’t chosen; other well-received shows like Miners Alley Playhouse’s stagings of Lungs and Our Town also were overlooked for an honor.
Personal Life refers to all aspects of an individual’s private existence outside their professional or public persona. This may include relationships, beliefs, interests and activities outside the realm of employment or public persona and often includes greater autonomy and privacy than one’s professional life, often providing an outlet for satisfaction and enjoyment in an otherwise mundane existence.
