"Gary hasn't survived as a professional in this game on good looks alone...the man has talent. It's not that he's just survived, he's thrived in this cut-throat industry. And, staying at the top of your game for as long as he has is no easy feat. Gary is, in my opinion, the sharpest man there is with a stopwatch in his hand and binoculars to his eyes. Since we launched Eclipse 5 years ago, Gary has been an instrumental part of our 2 year-old in-training sales scouting team. We've sourced Grade 1 performers each of the years we've been working the sales together and that's what separates the men from the boys: turning out Grade 1 horses, consistently, year in and year out. Gary takes his job seriously and he's as intense as they come when the money is on the line. But, to his credit, Gary doesn't take himself too seriously and our days in the stands scouting talent or on the sales grounds evaluating horses on the shank are filled with plenty of laughs. Gary is a team player and he enjoys what he does while always striving to identify the next "big horse." I've learned a lot from Gary over the years and he's the ultimate teammate and a devout friend. Horsemen and characters like Gary come around very seldom these days. Guys like Gary make the game better and it's awesome to have him on the Eclipse team."
