Steve Grabowski


I'm a New York bred. Born and raised in Queens/Long Island who got his first introduction to the game at the age of 7 - Seattle Slew won the Derby during my first Holy Communion house party and I rooted him home instead of Run Dusty Run who my Dad and I had pulled in the pool. I graduated from St. John's University with a Bachelor's of Science in Finance and Corporate Taxation and also hold a Master's degree in Sport Management. After working for management teams at racetracks on both coasts I returned home to work in Entertainment Finance at VH1/MTV Networks before settling in as a Handicapper and Writer for Daily Racing Form in New York City while doubling as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at my alma mater, teaching the finer points of Sport and Racetrack Management to undergraduates at St. John's. Steve joined the HRRN team in 2017 and currently serves as an analyst/handicapper on many of our programs
