If there's a job in horse racing Vic Stauffer hasn't done, let us know. Enthralled by the sport at an early age, Stauffer skipped high school so he could make the racetrack life his own. From hotwalker to chart caller to jockey's agent, Vic tried everything, all the while focused on his true love of announcing the races. That dream came true as well. Stauffer made a name for himself calling the legendary Zenyatta, a race in the middle of an earthquake and the final, sad day at Hollywood Park. In this edition of Around the Track, Stauffer shares emotional memories of those events, gives us a taste of what it means to be an agent and a steward, plus how did end up owning part of a baseball team?
