Owner Bio

Started going to the races at age 14 with my Dad. Became instantly hooked and fascinated by both the horses and trying to handicap a winner. My goal in life at the time became to someday own my own racehorse which I did at age 32. Since then I have owned over 50 horses and won over 250 races. I have bought my horses privately, via claim, or at yearling sales. I have also bred approximately 20 horses. My daughter rides and shows 2 of my retired runners.
