“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.”
