THOROUGHBRED INDUSTRY ACCOMPLISHMENTS - PAST AND PRESENT
During more than 35 years of active participation in
the thoroughbred business, I have always considered that it is
important to put into our industry. To that end I have accomplished
things that are considered to be of value to the thoroughbred industry.
Created the Thoroughbred Video
Magazine for the Thoroughbred Racing Associations.
This was the first home subscription sports
video magazine registered with the Library of Congress. It was
created to preserve our racing history. Magazine features of events
such as the sale of the $10,200,000, all meeting of Alydar and Affirmed, all of Ruffian's stakes races and

feature aired showed the defeat of the three great S-horses, Secretariat losing
the Whitney, Spectacular Bid losing the Belmont Stakes and Seattle Slew losing
the Paterson. As it turned out in that 1985 show, Spend a Buck was
defeated in the Haskell Invitational Handicap.
Developed the Horse of the
Year Bronze and the Race of the Year Painting.

horses and great events. Leroy Neiman's painting of the meeting of
Affirmed and Spectacular in the 1979 Jockey Club Gold Cup proved to be the
race for the Horse of the Year. Marcel Jovine, famous for his
creation of the Olympic coins, sculpted the bronze of John Henry.

Chaplaincy Services, the Jockey Guild, and a host of other worthwhile
