Buck Grottano
Born and raised in Rockaway Beach, New York, just minutes from Aqueduct Racetrack, Buck Grottano was first introduced to Thoroughbred racing 20 years ago. He was hooked for life when a co-worker who owned a small percentage of a few horses invited him to the racetrack to watch his horses run. Buck’s interest in the industry has only grown since.

In 2011, Buck started “Pass the Buck Talking Horses” on to share his passion for the sport with like-minded fans. Buck’s objective in launching the interview-format, call-in show was to help educate the novice fan, as well as to provide a platform and informal environment for some of thoroughbred racing’s biggest names to offer insight into the game to help racing enthusiasts learn about the industry’s many facets. The show also features handicapping and selections from noted handicappers, horsemen and TV and radio personalities.

Now, with over a quarter-of-a-million listeners from all over the world, “Pass the Buck Talking Horses” continues to grow and expand its loyal fan base.
