Turf Paradise has hired veteran and international race caller Craig Braddick for the 2021 Winter meeting, starting Jan. 4, 2021, the track announced Wednesday.
“It's an exciting challenge to call five days per week, but I've always enjoyed that,” Braddick said. “I want to do all I can to positively promote Turf Paradise and grow a fanbase for horse racing in my adopted home state of Arizona. We have some great horsemen and I expect the racing to be extremely competitive. I also want to be able to interact with horseplayers online, during racing, and get their opinions.”
Braddick, a native of Cambridge, England, has called all types of horse racing, including Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse, Arabian, Standardbred, and Jumps racing both in the U.S. and overseas. Most recently, he was the race caller at Rillito Park in Tucson, AZ.
