Saratoga Race Course announcer gearing up to call his first Travers

The voice you hear over the loudspeaker at Saratoga Race Course is new for this year. However, Frank Mirahmadi is not new to racing.

His trip to get to Saratoga started by imitating the great racing announcers of all time.

He honed his delivery over the years – eventually becoming the announcer at Santa Anita, and now calling his first Travers.

Hear him talk about what it’s like to be announcing such a big race by watching the video of Mark Mulholland’s story.
