About me/racing interests:
Living in a non-racing community with lack of funds, I am unable to travel to the track to see the "real deal." However, my passion and love for the Sport of Kings has motivated me to follow it, and do some handicapping along the way. I hope to bring the reputation of this sport to those around me, and youth like myself.

How did I get into racing?
I first got into racing back in early 2012. The first race I watched was the Kentucky Derby, where I immediately became fond of the sport.

Favorite racing moment?
My favorite moment of this year (2014) so far has been hard to decide on, but the Holy Bull would have to be my favorite. Cairo Prince, winner by 5 3/4 lengths, is stalking my Derby list like he did the frontrunning Almost Famous and Coup de Grace in his maternal grandsire's namesake race.
