Numa Snyder is the face Pennsylvania racegoers always see in the crowd and many now know who he is. Kimberley Rinker sheds more light on the octogenarian who is besotted with two things - racing and music - in her latest blog post on her Harness Racing Insider blog.

Born in Lehighton, Pa., in 1920, Snyder was first introduced to harness racing when his father took him to the local county fair.

“I remember my dad holding my hand as we watched the races at the Lehighton fairgrounds, and I can still hear him saying-as a field of trotters came off the turn—‘Gol’darn, ain’t they pretty!’” Snyder recalled with enthusiasm.
