We all know that the Voice of Santa Anita nowadays is the phenomenal Trevor Denman, who has been redefining the art of track announcing since the mid 80s. However, well before Trevor, the Voice of Santa Anita was the legendary Joe Hernandez. I would like to recommend Rudy Alvarado's book, which is available through the website in the title. The book was the winner of the prestigious Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award and is an excellent read. So, They Are Off offers congratulations to Rudy Alvarado on his work and all the accolades he has received for it.

We also wish to take a quick moment to thank for linking to They Are Off through that website. We link to the Paulick Report here and it is a valuable tool for anyone looking for more information on horse racing. Tune in tomorrow for more from They Are Off. For right now, I am Gone...GOODBYE!

Michael, thanks for reminding me about this book, which I have been meaning to get! I can remember hearing Joe Hernandez -- what a race caller.
