Anthony Mormino

Host, Handicapper

Growing up in the Capital District in the 1970s made it easy to become a lifelong horse racing fan.  Seattle Slew is my favorite horse and all time and watching a Triple Crown winner score in an allowance race at the Spa was a big thrill!  College years at the University of Souther California allowed me to enjoy Santa Anita and Hollywood Park growing my fandom.

In 1992, I did my first show for Capital OTB, Saratoga Preview, with Tom Amello and Nick Kling.
