This isn’t a usual or normal entry, I know.
But I wanted to take a minute to remember one of the unsung and largely unknown, but vitally important people in the racing industry. Mr. Calderon died last Sunday as a result of major injuries sustained in a fall from a horse he was exercising.
Please take a few minutes to read about Mario Calderon at the Paulick Report site. Exercise riders have one of the hardest jobs in the business, and often have the most to do with the success or failure of horses. Mario deserves to be remembered, and if you have the inclination, a trust fund has been set up for his children.
