Meet Jeff Byrnes


I have loved this sport since my early childhood. My first true memory was when my grandfather took me to Saratoga for the 2005 Travers Stakes, and watching Flower Alley come down the stretch to duel with Bellamy Road. I'll never forget that day, the roar of the crowd, and the pure excitement of winning. After that day, I became an instant fan of the game. Since 2005, I have followed horse racing and have gotten my family to become fans as well. Over the years, I've been to many tracks. Monmouth Park, Saratoga Race Course, Saratoga Harness, Freehold Raceway, Belmont Park, and the Meadowlands (all in the New York / New Jersey area).

I have enjoyed going to these tracks, but my dream is to visit tracks like Churchill Downs, Gulfstream Park, Santa Anita, and Del Mar. Of all the horses I've seen in my lifetime, nobody has captured my imagination like Curlin. The two time Horse of the Year is, and will always be, my all time favorite horse. My parents love Curlin, seems like every time his name is mentioned, they always want to talk about him. My top 5 favorite horses are Curlin, Rachel Alexandra, Medaglia D'Oro, Wise Dan, and American Pharaoh.
