The racing bug bit Tom Law in his formative teenage years, as it often does to those who grow up in Saratoga Springs. Other sports that involve finish lines were equally compelling-specifically cross country running and track and field-and the two intertwined at different points of his life, sometimes so much he was forced to leave The Pink Sheet and Daily Racing Form at home when they become a distraction during cross country practice warm-ups at Saratoga High. The distraction eventually became a career and it took him from a sports writing job at The Saratogian, where he covered racing seasonally in upstate New York to an award-winning career as a writer and editor for Thoroughbred Times in Lexington, Kentucky. Tom is managing editor of ST Publishing, Inc., parent company of the thisishorseracing.com Internet site, and relocated to his hometown in early April.
