On April 11, 2009 the sport of horse racing lost a wonderful friend with the passing of Tom Connolly.
Whether it was at Santa Anita or at Del Mar, people would flock to hear Tom speak at his beginners’ seminars.
When you met Tom, you knew you were meeting a one-of-a-kind individual who cared deeply for every horse racing fan – young and old.
Tom not only educated new fans, but he also taught them good habits that they could use in the future.
Tom we all still miss you!
