About me/racing interests:
I love racing for many reasons, but foremost it's because I love TBs: the claimers as well as the stars. My interest in the "Adversary family" is because my own horse was an OTTB by Mighty Adversary. I enjoy naming hypothetical TBs (e.g., Dehere x Tah Dah = SoThere). Sadly, my handicapping ability is inversely related to my love of the sport.

How did I get into racing?
My interest was sparked as a pre-teen, after going to the races for the first time on a family vacation. Years later I got a job at a TB breeding and training farm. Seeing how much the horses loved their job, and researching my own horse's history, fanned the spark into a flame.

Favorite racing moment?
Watching Major Adversary win gate to wire at Thistledown and go on to become Ohio Horse of the Year in 1995.
