Timothy T. Capps (1946–2017) was involved in nearly every aspect of the Thoroughbred industry. During the 1970s and mid-80s, Capps served as editor of The Thoroughbred Record, a leading industry monthly. In the mid-80s he ventured into the high-stakes stallion market as an executive with Matchmaker, a company that sold stallion seasons and shares.
From there he was lured to the racetrack and went to the Maryland Jockey Club, which oversees racing at Pimlico and Laurel Park. After serving as vice president of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association and editor and publisher of MidAtlantic Thoroughbred, Capps returned to the Maryland Jockey Club as executive vice president.
Capps was the author of two other titles in the Thoroughbred Legends series, one on Spectacular Bid and one on Secretariat. He resided in Columbia, Maryland.
Secretariat is arguably ‘the greatest all-time American thoroughbred,” and turf editor Capps’s devotion makes him the voice to call the race. (Previous Edition Praise)— Publishers Weekly
