Going in Circles Podcast

Going in Circles Podcast beginnings

I started doing the Going in Circles podcast because first and foremost I love horse racing. It has been a big part of my life since I was a kid growing up a few miles away from Saratoga Racecourse. Racing has for the most part been the only real job that I ever had though I have worn a lot of different hats during my career. I have been a hotwalker, a groom, a barn foreman, an assistant trainer as well as training my own string of horses for 20 years. I have bred horses, purchased and sold stakes winners at auction, including grade 1 winners, both here in the US and abroad. There is also frontside experience on my resume as I have charted races (both thoroughbred and Standardbreds), punched tickets as a mutual clerk and used my University of Arizona racetrack management degree for a few years as an assistant racing secretary. So I have seen the sport from many different angles which gives me a unique perspective on many of the issues that face racing. Writing limits your ability to express a lot of the subtleties on various topics as if you aren’t a talented wordsmith, a long soliloquy can get rather tiresome. Podcasts allow me to say what I want to say without being encumbered by space limitations, easily incorporates views of others as guests and once a week on our Tuesday LIVE format gives us the chance to directly interact and hear input from followers of the game.
