Condolence: John was a true one-of-a-kind when it came to knowledge of the horse racing industry and a true spokesman for Churchill Downs. I always enjoyed getting a chance to visit with John on his visits back to BG and am proud to have called him a friend. A true gentleman who will be missed, not just for his knowledge but his friendly smile!
Condolence: Mr. Asher ALWAYS took the time to chat with me about Derby trivia. If there was something I didn't know, he would help me out or send me in the right direction. He always made me feel welcome to stop him and talk. I will miss talking with him. Thoughts and prayers for his entire family.
Condolence: As a former broadcaster at WAVG AM I must express the sadness I feel about the loss of John Asher. He never forgot anyone his paths ever crossed, and was a credit to the broadcasting industry Grayson County. A great individual and a world wide figure for Kentucky may our transmitters across Kentucky go silent for a period of time in your honor
