Edward Boden, 72, dies

Columbus, OH — Standardbred and Thoroughbred racehorse owner Edward “Ed” Boden, 72, of Westbury, N.Y., died Oct. 3, 2020.

Mr. Boden, while best known as the founder and managing partner of the Drawing Away Stable, billed as a “no-expenses” Thoroughbred partnership, also owned Standardbreds from the 1970s through the 2000s.

As evidenced by nearly every Drawing Away Stable winner’s circle photo — and there were hundreds — Mr. Boden often stood in the back or at the far end, preferring to let others enjoy the experience and the moment. Some of his greatest joy came from watching others enjoy their Drawing Away Stable experience, as he created Drawing Away Stable with the intention of allowing the average person an opportunity to enjoy the fun and excitement of horse ownership in a tangible and affordable way.
