One of the special guests on Fantasy Owners Day at Laurel Park March 18 was Bruce Casella, who has worked for ESPN and NBC and currently is the videographer for “Let’s Go Racing,” the weekly television program on Parx Racing that he launched along with Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association President Sal DeBunda about 20 years ago.
Casella spent most of his day in Maryland shooting video and talking with participants in Fantasy Owners Day and the Fantasy Ownership Challenge. The PTHA, which is the driving force behind “Let’s Go Racing,” is intrigued by the Laurel fantasy contest, which runs through the end of the year, and has expressed interest in organizing a similar one at Parx in the future.
Casella took part in the contest at Laurel, and his fantasy horse, Participate, is second in the earnings’ standings as of March 19. Casella did a nice job capturing Fantasy Owners Day, and you can watch his video here.
