Mike has been playing the horses since the time he was in high school during the 1970’s. His paternal grandfather was a barber with a bookie joint in the back of his shop so you might say he was born to be a gambler. During his 45 year odyssey as a horse player he has seen many of the great horses and jockeys. He has also witnessed the sport change, from the time in the past when betting was largely limited to the local track, to today’s online options. Despite the game’s struggles he remains a fan today and proudly writes for Past the Wire, from the perspective of the average horse player.
