Paulick has a great wrap up of the tributes and services for Jack, written by Chris Kotulak, the Remington Park handicapper who wrote a biography of JVB.

This should have been on TV:

Years ago, Jack said to track announcer Frank Mirahmadi, “When they put me in a box I want you up there talking about me.” Frank did not let Jack down, nor did he disappoint the nearly 400 guests at the service. To no surprise, Frank concocted the perfect elixir of reverence and levity, which his audience savored – and I'm sure JVB did, too. He was not excessive (though he could have been) in the listing of Jack's countless accomplishments as a trainer. Through his meaningful research, Frank infused many quotes and anecdotes of Jack's adoring friends, employees and colleagues.
