Mike is the current president of HRRN and also serves as the anchor for all of its broadcasts. Last year, HRRN broadcast more than 100 of the nation’s best thoroughbred races. In early 2011, Mike and HRRN received an Eclipse Award for coverage of the 2010 Breeders’ Cup World Championships. This year HRRN will provide complete coverage of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont. Derby coverage will be carried on more than 50 affiliate stations across the country as well as on SiriusXM satellite radio. The coverage will also be broadcast to our service men and women around the world on the American Forces Network and streamed worldwide on the HRRN website. Mike’s passion for racing spans more than 2 decades. In 1989, he stood alongside the rail at historic Saratoga Racecourse and watched as Easy Goer won the Travers Stakes. After cashing his winning ticket on the heavy favorite, he was hooked for life. A native of Pittsfield, MA, Mike and his wife, Michelle, relocated to Lexington in 1997. Mike worked at The Jockey Club, Thoroughbred Times, and Keeneland’s racing office before pursuing his interest in broadcasting.
