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 interviews with such important industry figures to include Joe Thomas of Windfield and Hall of Fame Trainer Frank Whiteley were part of some of the issues.

 

  • Created Thoroughbred Broadcasters, Inc., parent company of " Racing Across America. "  The creation of the television show that began to air on ESPN was a natural offshoot of the Video Magazine.  I  co-hosted the first four shows with Chris Lincoln.  Magazine formats were part of the original show, much like the video magazine.  My formula as producer included showing races in their entirety and describing and measuring the physical structure of the horses in the featured race.  One such 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.  These art projects utilized great artists  to artistically commemorate great 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.

 

  • Wrote Article for the California Horse.  I wrote several articles for the California Horse Magazine including one which compared the thoroughbred industry to the wine industry.

 

  • Featured Writer for NYTHA Newsletter.  My monthly column for the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen's monthly publication is entitled For What It's Worth

 

  • Guest Speaker at Senate Hearing on the Internet.  On March 20, 1997. I was able to deliver some expertise to the New York State Senate Hearing on the Role of the Internet in the Dissemination of Gambling Information.

 

  • Created the Jana Domino Foundation and Champions Gallery Online.  The joint efforts of these organizations which specialize in the sale of equine memorabilia to racing fans, has provided over $65,000 for various charitable causes to include the Belmont Day Care Center, the Belmont Chaplaincy Services, the Jockey Guild, and a host of other worthwhile charities.
