Larry has loved horses and the equine industry ever since he was young. On his 16th birthday he traveled to Chicago and began galloping racehorses. Shortly after that he began racing as a jockey for about 5 years. However, not being the prototypical size for a jockey, he got tired of fighting his weight and decided to go back to galloping.
Larry proved to be an excellent exercise rider and quickly moved up to world-class racehorses including several Breeder’s Cup horses. In 1986 Larry was given the opportunity to condition Skywalker, the winner of the Breeders' Cup Classic run at California's Santa Anita Park ridden by Laffit Pincay, Jr.
After years of galloping, Larry became a jockey valet and worked for a string of hall of fame jockeys including: Bill Shoemaker, Eddie Delahoussaye, Russell Baze, and Pat Day. Larry worked as a valet and lived in California for 13 years. When Pat Day won some Breeder’s Cup races and paid Larry his share of the Stakes winnings, he used that windfall to invest in purchasing a jockey equipment business.
In 1994 Larry moved back to Kentucky and worked as a racing official at Churchill Downs and Kentucky Downs. He also moved his newly acquired jockey supply business to Kentucky where he honed his craft of whip making and built up his book of business. This included providing quality whips for jockeys like Kent Desormeaux, Chris McCarron, Pat Day, and Mike Smith to name a few.
Larry is now able to focus on his business and craft full-time and remain in the horseracing and equine industry that is in his blood.
