Ray DeStefano take 2, more racetrack tales

July 22, 2021

Thanks for watching Past the Wire TV! We have more racetrack tales with Ray DeStefano.

Ray talks about handling horses with the Asmussen brothers Cash and later Steve and Steve’s “growth” issues.

Ray loved Angel Cordero, and back then Angel was pretty much the ruler of the roost of riders, especially on the New York circuit. Hear how Angel was in the gate and with other riders, especially young apprentice jockeys.

Ray touches base on his breeding background and education, how a move from Brooklyn to Floral Park triggered it all and hints at some Frank Pancho Martin stories to come.

We wrote about Pancho a while back and you can check that out here….

Thanks for tuning in and we hope you enjoy the show:

@jonathanstettin @bbopjz Fantastic writing, thoroughly enjoyable read.
