He later worked for two Hall of Fame steeplechase trainers and rode as an amateur timber jockey from 1987 to 2013. In 2008 he was appointed to the PA Racing Commission and served until 2011. In 2011 he was appointed the Executive Director of the PA Horse Breeders Association and oversaw the administration of one of the country’s largest breeding programs.
