Owner Bio

Grew up on a horse before I could walk. Helped take care of my Dad's horses that ran at Green Mountain, helped with breeding and training their foals, then as his health deteriorated he sold them when I went off to college.  Was a race fan only for 30 years til we were at Saratoga and I entered into a Karakorum raffle to win a share of a racehorse.  Got the call that I "WON" and took some shares in Karakorum Budman... my first horse as an owner.  Bought a few more Karakorum horses until they went belly up.  Got involved in a partnership with my good friend George on a Parting Glass horse, In Your Dreams and a few others including Wholelottashakin who was Graded Stakes placed and one of the top NY Bred FM Turf runners who just sold at Keeneland auction.  Current horses are I Love You Still, a  2 YO Filly close to her first start and a share of a broodmare Ready for Therapy in foal to Birdstone.  Love the sport and going to the barns at Saratoga.
