Congratulations to Travis Stone, the track announcer at Louisiana Downs in Bossier City, LA, on being named one of the "Ten Industry Leaders To Watch" by the Thoroughbred Times. You might notice that Travis' website is linked on the left of this blog and he has returned the favor on his website and you can access They Are Off from his site as well.
Some of the other names mentioned on the "Ten To Watch" list are Tim Ice, trainer of Belmont Stakes winner, Summer Bird; Oliver Tate, Chief Operating Officer of Darley USA; Dan Silver, Director Of Communications for NYRA; and David Yu, Chief Executive Officer of Betfair. So, Travis is certainly in heady company to be sure.
Tune in tomorrow for more from They Are Off. For right now, I am Gone... GOODBYE!
