Mailbag: David & Goliath

For years as a trainer I have felt like I (David) have been up against the giant (Goliath), until I was introduced to two very special people, Andy Williams and Fred Crabbia. Together they have given me an opportunity to begin doing what was always my passion – to be a successful trainer of champion race horses. Any trainer having a runner on July day is overwhelming and a dream come true for me.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to Mr.Andy Williams and Mr.Fred Crabbia for allowing me the opportunity of training their horses and for helping me overcome my Goliath. Perseverance, hope and faith have seen me through very hard times in this game, but God put me in the right place at the right time and believe me – one is never too young or too old to recieve blessings.

Mr. Williams and Mr.Crabbia, thank you from the bottom of my heart – so too does my family – for giving me this opportunity to train horses. I would also like to thank you for giving so much to racing , it is gentleman like you who keep this sport going and I wish you and your families all the very best
