Frank Carulli Leaving Maryland Jockey Club

Posted on March 13, 2013

By Bill Ordine

Frank Carulli, familiar to the horse-racing community as the morning-line handicapper for the Maryland Jockey Club and as an on-air analyst, will be leaving Maryland horse racing for Las Vegas in June.

Carulli will end an 11.5-year association with the Maryland Jockey Club when the Pimlico spring meet ends June 8. That means Carulli will set the morning line for one more Preakness -- the 138th running of the Preakness Stakes will be held May 18.

Keith Feustle, the Equibase chart caller and a co-host for the "Today At The Races" pre-race show on the Maryland simulcast signal, will take over the morning-line duties, beginning with the Laurel fall meet in September.

Meanwhile, there will be a four-person competition to fill Carulli's on-air job on the Pimlico and Laurel TV broadcast. The competitors include Ryan Fogelsonger (March 20), Dylan Smith (March 21), Jackie Savoye (March 22) and Gabby Gaudet (March 23).

"We are sorry to see Frank leave," Maryland Jockey Club president Tom Chuckas said in a statement. "He is an extremely hard-worker who takes pride in his work, especially establishing the morning line where he is one of the best in the business. He gave us a year's notice that he was leaving which has given us the chance to look long and hard for a replacement. We thought this format would be the best way to determine the winner."
