About Jeannine Edwards:
A native of Tenafly, N.J., Edwards spent nearly a decade on the backstretch as an exercise rider and apprentice jockey. She later worked as a trainer in New York and New Jersey before getting into television part-time as an in-house host. She began doing interviews and handicapping after moving to Maryland in 1993.
Edwards joined ESPN as a racing analyst in 1995 when the network launched “National Best 7,” a live program on ESPN2 that showed seven live races per episode. The show was eventually replaced by “NTRA Today at the Races,” which aired for five years. During that span, Edwards began doing more remote shows and reporting on horseracing as well as college football and basketball, and also doing some SportsCenter work.
Edwards says her passion for animals is a driving factor in her life, “I am not just a horseracing fan, but an animal lover first. I don’t like to see any animal misused or mistreated. I have a real soft spot for animals. I think more can be done on the federal level and within the sport to take care of the equine athletes. When you are breeding this many horses every year you have to stop and think where are all these horses going. It’s pretty gruesome and very irresponsible to horses in this country. I understand we have to have an alternative to slaughter because these horses cannot just be housed in shelters for the rest of their lives; they are lot of work and money. The question remains, ‘What are we going to do with these animals?’”
Edwards currently lives in Maryland not far from Fair Hill Training Center. She enjoys riding her horse, who is retired from the track, and goes hiking with her two dogs in her spare time.
