Frank Carulli, the Pimlico Race Course and Laurel Park handicapper and racing analyst since January 2002, will leave the Maryland Jockey Club when the Pimlico spring meet ends June 8. He will be relocating to Las Vegas.
Next week at Laurel, the Maryland Jockey Club will have four guest handicappers vie for Carulli's on-air role as the Pimlico and Laurel television host: Ryan Fogelsonger, Dylan Smith, Jackie Savoye and Gabby Gaudet.
Fogelsonger, 31, won 1,303 races as a jockey and captured eight riding titles at the Maryland tracks. The 2002 Eclipse Award-winning apprentice has not ridden since early November, when he suffered a concussion during a spill.
Smith, 24, has worked for trainer Dickie Small since graduating from Kennedy in 2006.
Savoye is an assistant trainer for Dale Capuano. The 25-year-old South River graduate did on-air work at Gulfstream Park and Monmouth Park two years ago.
Gaudet, the daughter of longtime conditioners Eddie and Linda Gaudet, is finishing her final semester at Towson University.
Equibase chart caller Keith Feustle, who has co-hosted the "Today At The Races" prerace show on the Maryland simulcast signal with track announcer Dave Rodman since fall 2011, will take over Carulli's morning line duties beginning with the Laurel fall meet in September.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
