For Race Fans, 'The Training Game' is Ideal Father's Day Gift

ELMONT, N.Y. – As it is every year, Belmont Park will be jumping on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21 with plenty of activities in the backyard’s Festival Tent.

But if there is a need for one more token of affection for the racing fan that Dad is, checkout The NYRA Store, second floor clubhouse, from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. There, trainer Todd Pletcher and author Karen M. Johnson will be available to sign copies of Johnson’s recently released book The Training Game.

Johnson, the daughter of late Hall of Fame trainer Phil “P.G.” Johnson, is a freelance racing journalist who previously worked as a New York-based reporter for Daily Racing Form. In The Training Game, she profiles eight of America’s more accomplished active trainers: Steve Asmussen, Richard Dutrow Jr., Bobby Frankel, Neil Howard, Allen Jerkens, Carl Nafzger, Nick Zito and Pletcher.

“The Training Game is as real and inside as it gets,” said retired Hall of Fame jockey and ESPN racing analyst Jerry Bailey. “I’ve been around most of these guys for over 20 years and even I hadn’t heard a few of the stories. I couldn’t stop reading it!”
