Around The Track Podcast Presented By Taylor Made: Maggie Wolfendale’s Equine Eye

Maggie Wolfendale gives her analysis before a race

Maggie Wolfendale first sat on a horse when she was two years old. Yes, two.

Instead of being sent to a day care center, she played in a racetrack barn, where her mother and father (also the progeny of horsemen) trained Thoroughbreds. These days, Wolfendale is a valuable asset to racing fans and bettors as she uses her sharp eye for horseflesh to sort contenders from pretenders in the paddock before races at New York tracks.

She was an exercise rider for years, rides horses in other disciplines and is married to trainer Tom Morley, an up-and-coming Englishman trying to make his way on the New York circuit.

Life with Maggie Wolfendale, some tips on spotting good horses, and more in the latest edition of Around the Track, recorded near the paddock at Belmont Park.

    When Maggie discusses why she is choosing one horse over another in the looks department, i can tell she really sees everything. She often discusses the conformation of each horse and i enjoy that aspect of each horse myself. Thanks for the story. Linda in Texas.

    Best thing going at NYRA. Whatever they pay her , it’s not enough.

    And I’m not even related.

    In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king…

  • Michael Beauregard

    I like it when she tells us what she sees period. Don’t like it when she tries to handicap .

      I was going to say the same thing about your boy, Andrew Serling

    Maggie’s enthusiasm is contagious. She’s knows her stuff & is wise beyond her years.
