Obituary: Gerry Aschinger


Gerald Aschinger | War Horse Place

Gerald Aschinger, co-owner of War Horse Place, passed away Friday, May 17 after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

Aschinger and his wife Dana founded War Horse Place in Lexington, Ky. in 2004. An avid polo player before moving to Kentucky, he enjoyed success as a trainer, led by SW & MGSP Lots o' Lex (Kitalpha) and Dramedy (Distored Humor), who won the 2015 GII Dixiana Elkhorn S. at Keeneland.

There are currently no service plans, but in lieu of flowers, donations in his honor are welcome to his favorite charities, Thoroughbred Charities of America, America's vetdogs, MD Anderson and Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund.
