Angelo Cardin, 66, a well-known horse agent in both the trotting and horse eventing worlds, was found dead in his hotel room in Lexington, KY Wednesday. Mr. Cardin had told friends over the weekend that he wasn't feeling well, but gave no specifics about his health.
A native of Padua, Italy, Mr. Cardin lived in New York City when he was in the U.S. and not traveling. When in New York, he was a regular at baby races, qualifiers, and big race nights at the Meadowlands, or whenever a trotter he wanted to see was entered to race.
"He had a very good opinion of a horse," said Art Zubrod, manager of Brittany Farms, "and he loved to see good trotters. He drove to Hoosier Park last Saturday because he wanted to see the top trotters in action there. We were supposed to have dinner in Lexington Sunday night, but he phoned me and told me he didn't feel well."
