The American Dream Lives!
We think you’ll enjoy episode 12 of the Gate to Wire podcast, the American Dream lives. Jon and Michael bring you one of the coolest feel good stories of this year’s Kentucky Derby and one nobody else is talking about. They should be.
Throughout the pandemic and chaos across the globe in 2020, the Sport of Kings has soldiered on. In this week’s episode of Gate to Wire we have the story of an American Dream. You can come here to the USA not knowing the language, having no friends, contacts, or connections, and 10 years later you can be riding in the most famous and sought after horse race on these shores and maybe the world, the Kentucky Derby.
Most riders on the South Florida circuit speak English and/or Spanish. Imagine how much more difficult it would be if you came here and didn’t speak either of those two languages. Listen and hear how dedication, perseverance, a strong work ethic and a little luck got one rider from Italy, to South Florida, to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby.
Listen to one riders take on Kentucky Derby favorite Tiz the Law after testing him some earlier this year in Florida.
Thank you for listening. It will be hard not to root for this guy in the stretch!
