Pompano tip sheet handicapper Ed Ransom dies
« Return to News
Although he worked in various capacities in the field of law, his true passion was working in the equine industry and, indeed, he was able to find work as a timer and photo finish operator at various tracks, enabling him to create the tip sheet which has been a "bible" to many horse racing aficionados.
In a recent interview, he said, "It gives me great satisfaction to pick a winner or two for our visitors at the track. Over the years, I have made countless friends so I wouldn't trade places with anyone in any other vocation."
Mr. Ransom is survived by his wife, Glynis;sisters, Marianne McNabb and Beth; and brother, Ronald.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
