Seems like Michelle is gonna do more handicapping than what she did during the autumn meet
I like Kurt Hoover's approach to handicapping. Breath of fresh air vs old schoolers Siegal and White.
Yeah I listen to them too. They're good too
Michelle Yu was on TVG for a few years too!! She was reporting and did anchoring too.
Then, I heard she use to date Julien Leparoux too.
Working with Jon White is not easy. He is always talking about himself and what he did back when, who he bet in the past etc etc. Good Luck Michelle, I feel for you... What did she do to get fired from TVG? I never heard.
Saying negative comments about females being jockeys as they shouldn't be according to her (wonder how she feels now about that comment now that rosie napravnik is one of the best riders in the nation) and saying something bad about Myung Kwon Cho the trainer too.
In addition to horseracing, Yu is also involved as a sideline reporter covering high school football for Los Angeles-based Prime Ticket.
A lot of nostalgic Portland and Yakima Meadows stories about going to the races with his dad. Wake me up when it's over.
Good move on Santa Anita's part. Yu rocks!
