    In a business where people of “true quality” stand out, Donna is a beacon of light. I am proud to both know her and call her a friend. She makes the game better every day. Podcast a winner as is she!

    Thank you Donna. I really enjoyed the interview. Scott does a nice job. I was at Saratoga years ago and you were riding. Your mother was actually at the track sitting at the table next to mine. You won the 9th Race on a fairly long shot (And, I was lucky enough to have the Trifecta) and I remember the excitement on your face when you ran over to see your mother after the race, still in your silks and caked in mud. The excitement you exuded in you greeting your mother was memorable. I think it may have been your first win at Saratoga. Thoroughbred racing is that much the better to have you as one of its best promoters.

    Scott, excellent Around The Track with Donna Barton Brothers. Donna is inspirational and to be admired for her career and contribution to the racetrack and the equine industry. Great interview!

    I do like her, I do, but I had to wonder about her asking Victor Espinosa about his “first” triple crown. What a silly question. Espinosa had just won the ONLY triple crown in 37 years. She more or less invited him to trivialize the accomplishment – which he did by citing Monster ….
