Episode72--Frank DiTondo ---A "Bettor" Friendly Guide to Profitable Handicapping for Novice and Seasoned Handicappers
Frank DiTondoFinancial services his profession, thoroughbred racing his passion! Frank DiTondo got hooked early in life when his father took him to Suffolk Downs in the summer of 1942 to see Whirlaway, the Triple Crown winner in 1941, run and win the Massachusetts Handicap. He became an avid student of the game, with an unquenchable thirst to learn, enabling him to grow from a novice teenager learning to read the Daily Racing Form to an informed and acknowledged successful handicapper.
Becoming an owner in 1986 by "getting his feet wet" in a racing partnership was a natural progression. In 1988 he teamed with Monica Driver and formed the White Sash Racing Partnership. Private ownership followed in 1993 after meeting John Parisella. That experience became the stepping stone to becoming the syndicator and managing partner of the Parisella Racing Group partnerships following his retirement from a major life insurance company. The contractual dissolution of PRG Silver Stables in 2000 led to the re-birth of White Sash Stable and a return to private ownership.
The lessons learned, knowledge, and experience acquired along with associating with accomplished and successful racing industry professionals, helped hone and refine his handicapping skills. The writing of One Minute Handicapper is the culmination of 63 years of learning.
"In The Beginning" chronicles the metamorphosis from"Hooked" at Suffolk the Summer of 1941 to the "Conception" of the OMH at Saratoga in August 2004.
