Guest commentary in Thoroughbred Times TODAY

Last week, Ed DeRosa of Thoroughbred Times invited me to write a commentary piece about my grandpa and our time together at the races for the daily email publication, Thoroughbred Times TODAY. I was more than happy to oblige.

The story appeared in Tuesday’s edition of TODAY and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. They even picked a pretty sweet picture of me for my bio. Have a look for yourself…

    Very nice Joe. Well done. I guess I never thought of it, but your comment that family members are the ones who bring us to the sport rings true with me also. My uncle first took me to the track back in the 60’s in New York. While other kids were going to see the Yankees and Mets, I got to see some great races with Damascus; Dr. Fager; Buckpasser, etc. It does sort of bridge the gap of generations. You’ll always remember your grandpa on those nice sunny days at the track.
    Thank you.

    Thank you very much!

    The family element is one of the things that makes the sport great. Almost to the number, everyone I know in the industry was brought in by a father, grandfather, uncle, sibling, etc.

    Lots of baseball enthusiasts may become fans through family members, but how many actually become active members of the game like the owners, trainers, breeders, riders, etc.? It’s really something special.

    Thanks for sharing your story. What a fantastic time to get into racing.
