| Started Playing:
||I first started going to the races with my father when I was just a tyke. We went on Sundays for the Pick 6 (then called the 5 and 10) and to Santa Anita and Hollywood to see Silky Sullivan run, my dad's favorite equine. Serious handicapping started in 1981 at Golden Gates Field. |
| Handicapping Mentor(s):
||A really good friend showed me the ropes of reading a race form. However, while attending satellite facilities in Fresno, I struck up a friendship with a person that seemed to win a lot and he shared his skills with me, some of which I still use today. His name was Walter R. |
| Handicapping Style:
||Class and improving horses. |
