JJ was born in Philadelphia, Pa. and attended Villanova University. He has vast experience in horse racing and broadcasting. JJ has been a fixture in the Thoroughbred Horseracing Industry since 1962 as both an owner and a trainer. In fact, he still holds the record as the most winning trainer at Atlantic City Race Course; not to mention the multiple titles he’s held at Garden State Race Course in New Jersey.
Graci established his radio career in Florida with “AT THE RACES” which was aired on Fox Sports radio from 2002-2004.
In addition to doing radio he started a company called The Dominator which makes Herbal Blends for horses.
JJ is the father of two grown children and has two grandchildren.
In 2018 JJ returned to his Native Pennsylvania. He continued to do At the Races, now on Blog Talk Radio weekly, and also was the Paddock Host and Handicapper at Delaware Park. The Dominator line of Herbal Blends continues to grow with its Respiratory, Bleeder Pain Blends. Sadly JJ passed in 2022. He will always be a part of Past The Wire. JJ believed in Jonathan Stettin and Past The Wire from the beginning and never said no. Loved and missed. For more on JJ read this: JJ Graci Tribute
