Despite his humble roots, Mike Repole's goals have always been lofty, and to his credit, he's achieved many of them.
The kid from Queens who was the first person in his family to attend college turned a small beverage company into a giant worth $4 billion. He dreamed of owning racehorses as a teenager, and he's made that come true as well, winning top-class races like the Breeders' Cup Juvenile and the Travers Stakes.
Those who work with him, like trainer Todd Pletcher, are well aware of Repole's tendency to ask questions. In this episode of Around the Track, host Scott Jagow poses the questions of Repole. What propelled his success as an entrepreneur? What are the stories behind Uncle Mo and the heartbreaking ending for one of his other favorite horses? Where is that canoe anyway? And much more.
