He also has worked at Penn National, Presque Isle Downs, Keeneland, Churchill Downs, and Sam Houston Race Park. He has worked on three synthetic surfaces: the Tapeta Footings surface at Fair Hill and the Polytrack at Keeneland and Woodbine. Brown is an unabashed advocate for these new surfaces.
During this year's Triple Crown season, his blog was among those featured on the New York Times' web site.
Brown has an MBA from the University of Delaware. He also taught Internet Marketing at the University of Delaware in 1997. In addition, Brown also worked at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania for seven years, and at a boutique consulting firm, Clearadmit.com, for two years.
