If there ever was a Zelig or Damon Runyon type character from the racetrack Ray Destefano fits the bill pretty good. You name it Ray has seen and done it on the racetrack, and even off it.
In this series of racetrack tales you will meet Ray. Ray is one of two people who cradled the great Ruffian when she was euthanized following The Great match Race with Foolish Pleasure.
This is just the beginning in a series of talks with Ray where he shares some of the best racetrack stories and history you will ever hear. In this first episode amongst other things hear about the time the track Vet for NYRA shocked himself with a buzzer or battery. You just can’t make this stuff up, and you won’t find anything like it anywhere but here at Past the Wire.
Sit back and enjoy the show, there is so much more to come:
