How did I get into racing?
I was a horse enthusiast before I became a horse racing fan. I was looking for an equine book series in the fiction section at my local library when I stumbled upon one that was a horse racing fiction series (and for the life of me, I cannot remember the name of it because it was that long ago), thus becoming acquainted with the sport. Then, I watched Funny Cide's loss in the Belmont Stakes and read the biography on him. Since 2002, I've been hooked.

Favorite racing moment?
I've had lots of those. However, the one that stood out the most for me was when Artie Schiller won the Breeders Cup Mile. Saw him look spectacular in the post parade and knew he would win it, even with all that traffic in front of him. Became a follower of Artie Schiller since he ran in the Virginia Derby way back.
