Bobby Doyle! "They're running!"

Dick Riley called the Pomona Fair (and in fact, he used to announce all the CARF fairs except Ferndale). He was succeeded by Ralph Siraco, and then by Trevor, who...

Henson had a distinctive voice and added a great deal of drama to big moves and stretch duels.

Having said that, he was a product of his time. Henson started in the 1940's, at a time when...

Aqueduct obviously isn't what it once was- how could it be, as it was the place where 50,000 people would crowd the grandstands to see horses like Kelso and Damascus?
