B PASSES

-- Bob Marks

MANALAPAN, NJ -- July 28, 2016 -- George W. Berkner universally known as B throughout the harness world and the world in general succumbed to the ravages of pancreatic cancer following a gallant battle. B as everyone called him was 74.

A long-time trainer driver, B is best known for steering the fabled B.G.’s Bunny to a then track record 1:54 in the inaugural Meadowlands Pace first heat back in 1977. Although Escort, won the second heat as B.G.s Bunny was unable to return coming up sore following his effort, it was the Bunny that won the hearts that night.

More recently, George trained and partially owned New Jersey Classic winner B.G.’s Folly p,3,1:49.1 (Rocknroll Hanover-Art Amour) and put together the ownership group behind that one’s sensational full brother Rockeyed Optimist p,5,1:48.

B is survived by his beloved wife Ginny Whipple who was at his side throughout. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any donations be made to the Alan Kirschenbaum Heading for home Horse Retraining and adoption center 683 Lake Avenue, Saratoga NY 12866

It should be noted, that “Kirsh” got his start as a caretaker then second trainer for B.

Services will be held at Buckleys Funeral Home Asbury Park, NJ from 3-7 PM on Saturday July 30, 2016.
