Geo serves multiple roles at Past the Wire. He is a columnist, handicapper, analyst, and also is our Director of Business Development.
Geo has been fascinated with the Sport of Kings since he was 15 years old. He was raised in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York. His interest was piqued while working for an Italian neighborhood mason worker who just happened to own a few thoroughbreds. During some of their weekend jobs, they would take a quick drive to either Aqueduct or Belmont. Since that time, Geo has honed his skill as a handicapper, studying the pedigrees and past performances so often that he has delighted in providing extended handicapping and analysis to his close group of friends. He has conducted racing seminars and has taught numerous people the language of the game.
By trade, Geo has worked within the financial services industry for more than three decades as a business analyst, corporate actions specialist and licensed mortgage banker.
He is the proud father of Geo Jr and daughter, Samantha.
Geo has not missed a Kentucky Derby since 1977 and has fully handicapped every Breeders’ Cup championship series since its inauguration in 1984.
Geo is delighted to be a part of the team at Past The Wire. He enjoys helping people achieve a greater level of success at the windows and looks forward to combining his racing knowledge and experience with his passion as a writer. He also takes great pride in promoting the Sport of Kings through a brand he truly believes in and is a part of, Past the Wire. You can follow Geo on Twitter at @settebetterdays
