Peter Fornatale:I’m the host of the DRF Players’ Podcast, a horse racing show. I work in the horse racing industry for Daily Racing Form, analyzing races and also cover horse racing tournaments, where players compete against each other like the World Series of Poker. I have a book coming out, Betting With An Edge, that’s a collaboration with a professional horse bettor.
I’m also very interested in food and spirits. My last book, Brooklyn Spirits, was all about the craft distilling and cocktail scene in my home borough. I also really like beer and DIY food projects (I can tomatoes, make hot sauce and bitters, etc).
My father, since passed away, was a famous rock DJ in NY from the 60s til his passing in 2012. I grew up around and love music, especially rock and roll. I am an avid vinyl collector. I’m basically reconstructing his old record collection.
I have a wife and 4 year old daughter.
