Trainer Bio

One of the most endearing qualities of Arlington-based trainer Neil Pessin is his self-deprecating sense of humor. It’s always acute, dependably dry, and spoken with the gentle voice of a physically large man who walks softly but could probably carry a big stick if needed.

3-year-old native of Lexington, Kentucky, ideally fulfills his alternate role as one of Arlington’s greatest ambassadors, keeping his audiences delightfully off-balance with one-liners that leave them laughing out loud.

“I grew up in this game,” said Pessin, son of the noted veterinarian Arnold G. Pessin who died last January. “I’ve been training for more than 30 years and I don’t know how to do anything else.

My dad was the biggest influence on my career. He built the Kentucky Training Center and also built Dueling Grounds (now known as Kentucky Downs). I ran the race meet at Dueling Grounds the first three years after it opened, and any advice I ever needed I got from Dad.”

“I’ve had training doubles at Fair Grounds before but never up here at Arlington,” Pessin said. “I’ve only got 10 horses right now and usually don’t run more than one or two horses on the same day, so I’m usually not in a position to get two wins in one day. Statistics don’t mean that much to me, anyway. My goal is to develop horses and do what’s best for the horse and not worry about my win percentage. Judge Angelucci was probably the best horse I ever trained. I broke his maiden but then I sent him to (the late Hall of Fame trainer) Charlie Whittingham out in California and he won a lot of stakes with him. Coaxing Matt was another good horse I trained. I won two or three stakes at Keeneland with him back in the ‘80s."  Pessin was after posing in the winner’s circle with Candy Wiseman’s Tonzie on August 23, 2012 and then once again with John and Kim Glenney’s Mi Luna Grande later in afternoon.

Neil Pessin also stables at the Fair Grounds and Keeneland racetracks.
