About me/racing interests:
A life-long love of the Sport of Kings; the power, the excitement, the color, the names, the history, the traditions. The human stories behind the horses. Often heart-wrenching stories of adversity and perseverance, of overcoming the odds to experience that moment of glory.

How did I get into racing?
My father was an avid horseplayer and took me to the track at an early age.

Favorite racing moment?
So many. Secretariat; the Affirmed/Alydar showdowns; Russell Baze becoming the winningest jockey. And on a personal note; Smarty Jones coming up short in his bid for the Triple Crown. It was the last race my father saw before he passed away.
