From my early days going to the races with my dad. I always wanted to work in racing. Quoting Papa Wallenda pretty much sums up my travels in Thoroughbred racing. My first job at the track was really exciting, or that’s what I thought. I had a slick green windbreaker and khaki shorts with my […]

Life gives us front row seats for every season, emotion, and reaction. Sports as a whole is way for us to shed the dividers, put away the blinders and come together as one. Racing is my sport of choice. Oh, I love football and the crisp air of autumn. But it doesn’t compare to the […]

I used to cut my teeth watching a local TV program about horse racing. There were two of the greatest guys on the tube that could educate without talking over your head. They would poke fun at each other and allow you to see the fun side of racing. It was time well spent, and […]
