Jude Feld joined the HRRN team in 2007 as paddock reporter and analyst. He has loved Thoroughbred racing since his youth. He began his horseracing career in 1978, making charts for the Daily Racing Form at Ellis Park in Henderson, Kentucky under the tutelage of legendary trackman Jack Valentine. After a stint as assistant trainer to Doug Udouj in the Bluegrass State and to Julio Canani in California, Jude took out his own trainer’s license in 1980. He has trained the winners of 23 stakes, including graded winners Pewter Grey, Steff Graf (Brz) and Vieille Vigne (Fr) as well as multiple stakes winners Broadway Pointe, Freya Stark (Ire), Order and Capel Meister (Fr). Retiring from training in 2000, Jude became a racing publicist, public handicapper and bloodstock consultant. In 2003, he was honored with an Eclipse Award, alongside G.D. Hieronymus, for their collaboration “If it was easy…everyone would do it,” which he wrote and G.D. produced for Keeneland. Jude has an intimate knowledge of the Sport of Kings and countless friends in the Thoroughbred racing industry. In 2011, Jude was honored with his second Eclipse Award as part of our HRRN’s broadcast of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.
