    Default Trying to find exercise rider at NY, PA, DE tracks

    Hi everyone,
    I'm trying to locate a friend who worked as a jockey and an exercise rider at the Meadowlands, Delaware Park, Pimlico, Philly Park, and other tracks in the mid-1990s through 2006 or so. I worked as a hot walker at the Meadowlands in the 1990s, but left that job and lost contact with the backstretch world soon after.
    I haven't had any luck finding my friend through google searches, etc. I know that he is currently licensed as an exercise rider in NY, but I don't know if he is working.
    Should I call the racing office at each of the tracks he might be working at? Any suggestions?
    Thank you!!!

    One person I just met that seems to have a lot of connections is Alex Brown. You can find him on facebook. He is at Fair Hill Training Center. He may be able to give you a lead. Good Luck

    No harm in calling the racing office of a track where he or she might be working and asking if anyone has contact info or if you can leave your contact info with someone in the office.
    Good luck.
