Howard used to call from the apron at Yonkers for fun, that's how he was discovered. I can hardly wait...

Howard was the original grandstand race caller. The only difference between now and his calling in the old days at YR and RR is he used to call the race BEFORE IT WENT OFF. He was a fixture back in the day.

Our own James W also usues the portable from the grandstand at Chester and he is almost never wrong,
