WATCH TOM DURKIN CALL A RACE AT SARATOGA

The idea was the brainchild of Durkin and West Point Thoroughbreds' Rich Cristiano as a way to raise money for the Backstretch Employee Team, B.E.S.T.
Cristiano said, "We thought this was a great idea. I was able to watch Tom call the Breeders' Cup Sprint last year, and it was a dream come true. Tom and I are both members of the board for B.E.S.T. and we started talking about how we could take a unique opportunity and benefit a great organization."
