I was saddened to hear that jim passed away awhile back.Worked for jim back in the eighties at pompano park and at brandywine raceway.Jim was a straight shooter that raced his horses on hay and oats.Had some nice horses with the likes of shannon supreme,mr sea,rockney lobell.

Rockne lobell was a nero and was a nice horse.I believe he run second to run the table in a overnite race.Run the table was getting ready for the battle of brandywine.Thats funny because on the other side of the barn in brandywine was jim crane who i believe had nero.
