Simon Bray grew up in Britain with a father who owned racehorses, so he had the good fortune of connections to the Thoroughbred industry. Bray has also had some tough luck through the years, both in his professional life and with his diagnosis of a rare form of blood cancer. He learned perseverance at a young age, and that helped Bray overcome misfortune and thrive in his career, currently as a popular on-air host at the horse racing network, TVG.
In this episode of Around the Track, Bray tells stories from his days with legendary trainers Henry Cecil and Bill Mott, horses like the “incomparable” Cigar, his battle with Multiple Myeloma, and much more.
