Dale Romans, who is having the best year of his career as a trainer having won the Pacific Classic and Arlington Million, both $1 million races, and two other grade I races, was the guest on “Talkin’ Horses with The Blood-Horse” live podcast Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012 at 2pm EDT.
Currently, Romans is third among North American trainers, with $8.3 million in 2012 stable earnings. Through Sept. 17, he had 97 winners from 560 starters. Last year, Romans ranked 8th in the trainers’ standings, with $7.8 million in earnings.
Among his achievements this year have been grade I victories in the Arlington Million with Little Mike, $1 million Pacific Classic with Dullahan, Metropolitan Handicap with Shackleford, and Just A Game with Tapitsfly.
In addition to winning grade I races coast to coast, Romans has also been an outspoken opponent of efforts to reform medication rules across the country, particularly the move to prohibit raceday administration of the anti-bleeder medication furosemide.
The podcast will be co-moderated by Ron Mitchell, online managing editor of Bloodhorse.com, and Tom LaMarra, news editor for The Blood-Horse magazine and Bloodhorse.com and co-host of Bloodhorse.com’s “That Handicapping Show.”
