Racing interest:
Working in racing, that is my interest that I love.
First track attended:
Belmont Park
Location:
Kentucky
About me/racing interests:
Joined the backstretch of Belmont Park in 1982 as a hot walker for David Whiteley. Been in racing ever since from Groom, Foreman, Assistant Trainer, Trainer and owner. Also worked for NYRA publicity department several years in the 80's and the horse racing channel HRTV since 2003. I free lance for HRTV currently.

How did I get into racing?
Went to track on weekends, met a bunch of people in the business. Landed my first job with the track when visiting Espositos Tavern and I met the Foreman for David Whiteley. Told me to show up the following morning at Gate 6 at 5:30. I was there at 4:45 am. Hooked from the first day.

Favorite racing moment?
Walking up for the 2002 Kentucky Derby with Came Home. Willing the 1994 Sprint Breeders Cup with Cherokee Run, winning the 2006 KY Oaks with Lemons Forever, winning the KY Cup Turf with Silverfoot
