Roger was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and attended Rutgers University, where he received a B.A. in business and accounting, with 32 credits in the latter. When he was sixteen, a bit underage, he began frequenting the beautiful Garden State Race Track (1942-May 1, 2001) a quintessential racing facility which ultimately lost its wonderful life due to the influx of casinos at Atlantic City. Even at a young age, Roger showed an early proficiency for handicapping horses, poring over the then Morning Telegraph (analogous now to the Daily Racing Form). For over four decades, Roger has had the opportunity to tweak and ultimately perfect his stellar methods for handicapping horses. In 1973, while stationed in San Diego, Roger had the opportunity to watch Sham win the Santa Anita Derby under Laffit Pincay. The love for Santa Anita Park has persisted all these years. Now retired, Roger devotes his full time to profitable handicapping, focusing exclusively on the grand race facilities in California, especially Santa Anita- The Great Race Place.
