Over the next couple of weeks, The Racing Biz will celebrate the holiday season by sharing a few of our (and your) favorite pictures, articles, and videos from 2013. Our folks have been on the spot for many of the most important racing days of the mid-Atlantic season and have come up with compelling words and images to tell the tales they’ve heard and seen. We hope you’ll enjoy them…
EDDIE GAUDET and BILLY CHRISTMAS
Between them, trainers Eddie Gaudet and Billy Christmas saddled more than 14,000 horses in their careers. Safe to say that the two of them have personally experienced more racing history than most of us will ever learn. They are also both true racetrack originals, and one of our favorite moments came during Preakness weekend, when Jeff Krulik — just by chance — caught up with both of them.
