Thomas Allen Pauley and Ray Smietanka; With Respect 07/27/19

John’s guests this week are two aficionados of thoroughbred horse racing: Thomas Allen Pauley and John’s brother, Ray Smietanka. They share a common interest in the visuals and personalities of what used to be called The Sport of Kings. Tom Pauley is a nationally famous painter of horses and the people who care for and ride them in races; Ray Smietanka began with a photography hobby and turned it into being a free-lance photog of horse racing as well. The three discuss with a passion their history with racing, from the Kentucky Derby to small tracks that no longer exist.
