• Tom Amello

    Tom Amello began his Thoroughbred education over 60 years ago, learning the game from his father and uncle. In 1984, Tom created a database of New York trainers and horses that became the foundation for a Saratoga selection sheet, Trackfacts, which debuted at the 1989 Spa meet. In 1992, Trackfacts, a Capital District OTB television show debuted covering New York and national Thoroughbred racing. The program morphed into a 90-minute live call-in format, Trackfacts Live. Tom has conducted numerous handicapping seminars and workshops, including participation in “Count Down to…” programs at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame and for the New York Racing Association at Saratoga Race Course. In 2013, Tom published Playing the Odds Board: Gateway to the Game ™, a guide which makes racing and betting easier to understand and more fun for those new to Thoroughbred racing. Tom is a past member of the National Turf Writers and Broadcasters.
