Larry Collmus Is The New Voice Of The Triple Crown

As expected, Larry Collmus has been named the new voice of the Triple Crown.

Collmus, 44, replaces Tom Durkin, who stepped down Tuesday due to stress.

“This is something I’ve being doing since I was a little kid and obviously your dream is to call the Triple Crown and here it is,” said Collmus. “It’s surreal and exciting as can be. I can’t wait.”

Collmus, the track announcer at Gulfstream Park and Monmouth Park, knows he has an uphill battle in front of him as the replacement to Durkin.

“It’s going to be a daunting task,” Collmus said. “The most memorable calls in racing are Tom’s. He’s a legend and he’s shown how to do this, how to call the Triple Crown. I have big shoes to fill and a lot of respect for Tom. I’m looking forward to getting my chance.”
