Brian has been a passionate fan of horse racing his entire life. From the time of seeing Secretariat win the Belmont Stakes by 31 lengths in person at a very young age, he has closely followed all aspects of the sport. Before founding Derby Day Racing, Brian served as the Editor of Horse Racing Nation for seven years from 2010-2017, where he remains as Senior Writer. It was at HRN where Brian also founded the popular racing show, HorseCenter, which he continues to co-host with partner, Matt Shifman.

A Hall of Fame voter, and horse lover, Brian is known for his keen eye in picking out quality runners. It is his vision to bring in as many new fans to horse racing as possible, with the simple goals of having fun, respecting the horses, and winning races.

Brian is also an ardent supporter of thoroughbred aftercare, and currently serves as the President of The Exceller Fund. A graduate of DePaul University, Brian lives between Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky with his wife Candice and daughter Kendra.
