Mr. Kurzrok purchased his first horse in the mid-1970s after spending time at Roosevelt Raceway. He started with claimers and worked his way up to owning several top stakes winners. He not only loved the sport, but loved the animals and enjoyed visiting the farms each fall prior to the yearling sales.
