I think John Bogar has been at Penn National since around 1983? I remember when it would be him and Fred Lipkin on “Racing Alive” at PN. It would be very informative listening to those two prior to each race.

The ones I know about are Hernandez, Moore, Henson, Buchdahl, Byers, Masters, Perrins, Alexander, Wrona, Denman, Kruytbosch, Kotulak, Stauffer.

But there's one or two who called a race or two. (John Tabb called a few when they brought Wrona up here.)

Plus, Terry Gilligan called quarterhorses and the immortal Roy Shudt and Robin Burns called trotters and pacers there.

Thanks, yeah, I think that's all correct. That's what I get for posting uncaffeinated and ;TLDR

Michael Chamberlin was just announced this weekend as leaving Evangeline for Hoosier.

John Lies calls at Will Rogers Downs. I believe it's the "other" (not DRF) Steve Anderson who calls at Fonner.

Having Grunder's name wrong originally is really the ultimate in paying homage to his race calling style

Sad to hear that. Your position is often criticized and rarely praised. All the best to you for whatever's next!

That stinks, you have always done a very good job. I'll miss your calls. I watch and bet often as many horses show up here at Remington plus I like the all dirt racing as a figure maker

Disheartening news, Jimmy. You started at Prairie Meadows the same year I started at Mountaineer. I hope you can stay in the game elsewhere and leave on your terms.

Penn was my home track. John made his picks every day in the Patriot news for about 20 years. Good handicapper, accurate race caller, even if he's "rather" monotone.
