I think unless an announcer is a household name it should be a rule to link a race call if one is mentioned.

I would say Tony is a household name. He has been at Finger Lakes. Here are the last day of replays:

what a great hire this was for Turfway.. hiring him will actually help increase business for the track as long as they keep their field sizes high like in the past.

Tony's famous enough he made it into Frank Miramahdi's infamous Hasta La Vista race call at Turf Paradise so many years back.

Thanks, he is a household voice to me , I often don't remember the names.
Did he ever call at Golden Gate or Bay Meadows?

So does this mean that Tony will still be Finger Lakes' caller, since Turfway's 72 day meet corresponds to when FL is closed for the winter?

I hope this is the case.

Yes, I believe he called both of them.

I know I have heard that voice at multiple places I have wagered, definitely enjoy his calls.
