Ed Golden, a native Philadelphian, won an Eclipse Award honorable mention for thoroughbred writing while with the Philadelphia Daily News and, as publicist at Santa Anita, "discovered" Larry The Legend. While morning line odds maker at Monmouth Park and Garden State Park, he once went 134 straight days selecting at least one winner on the program during a Garden State meeting, including one day when the card was snowed out after just two races.
As handicapper at the Philadelphia Daily News, his best bets once won on 10 consecutive days. A $2 win parlay would have returned more than $19,000. In addition to being the first to uncover the Larry The Legend story, Golden also was first with the Jeff Lukas-Tabasco Cat accident, as well as other important and informative news from the world of thoroughbred racing. Presently a freelance writer, his stories have been published in The Blood-Horse, The Backstretch, Thoroughbred of California and Gaming Today.
