Linda Gaudet

“It was June 1978 when I was dropped off at Delaware Park to work for Eddie and Linda Gaudet as a hot walker.  Eddie had trained a horse that my family bred named ‘Tons’ and won the NY Breeders futurity. I had years of farm experience but little racetrack experience. Needless to say it was a summer of learning and experiences that need not be detailed here.   Linda took me, a 17 year old Jewish kid from New York, under her wing. I secretly fell hard for her sister Lisa and tripped over many a shank and fly net to prove it.  Fast forward to the present day. We both serve on our prospective horseman’s boards for years now.
