Friends, Family Remember Paul Keays
Thursday, May 15, 2008 - by Mark Ratzky, Publicity Dept., Cal-Expo

A memorial service was held this past Sunday (May 11) in Herald, California for horseman Paul Keays, who passed away earlier this month at age 59 after a year and a half-long battle with cancer.

The Canadian native is survived by his wife of 25 years, Jo; his mother Loretta, who is 90; four sisters and one brother.

Paul had many top performers over the years, with three of the best being the pacer Van Rhet and the stakes-winning trotters Oso Speedy and So Fast. For the past dozen years, he has concentrated on horseshoeing while also training a small group of trotters.
