Trainer Chuck Simon and Steve introduced Dee Tee Stables in 2006 as a way to bring fans into the game as owners at a minimal cost. For as little as $500, more than 125 stables partners have joined the racing club, and have seen 4 current Dee Tee runners compete at Saratoga, Belmont, Keeneland, Churchill Downs, Arlington and Turfway Park as owners.
Steve is well known at Saratoga for his Carolina Barbecue Co. Cafe on the Race Course grounds, and as the host of the Thoro-Graph Weekend Seminars there. He was named to the NTRA’s Horseplayers’ Coalition Advisory Panel in 2008.
