Steve is many things. He is a band member, a race photographer, a dog lover, a sports lover and much more. Steve and Kim came rolling over to talk to me at the first Wags event back at Ascot and never left. They ate Chili, bought a Wagtimes T-shirt and there began a longtime love for what we do. Steve came up with the Hard Charger award in 1992 where we gave $200 to Harlan Willis. Last year (2017) Damian Gardner received $1560.50 and a specially labeled handle of Crown Royal. This year (2018) Steve is retiring from shooting races and the last hard charger award will be special. Steve has been there from the beginning of Wagtimes and continues to be committed, or should be, to the cause. All things change and I hope the future is still bright. Thanks for all you do! Steve presented Damion Gardner with his swan song record Lafond Jar after the races. He also had a nice award for Rip williams. It was one of his foto's put together nicely by Mike Arthur and presented with much appreciation from Steve for all the years he gave us racing.
