Local racing fixture, Don Grisham, dead at 84

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - There are people who walk this earth who contain an inner light, a spark, a glow. Some call it a vibe, and when you meet these people, you instantly like them.

Unfortunately, we have lost one of those people.

Don Grisham was a native of Hot Springs, a graduate of Henderson State, and spent most of his career writing for the Daily Racing Form.

He witnessed some legendary horses at Oaklawn. One of them we met for the first time together: Smarty Jones.

Oaklawn GM Eric Jackson said today of Don that there wasn't anyone anywhere who didn't like him.

Grisham was 84 years old.
