The Articulation of the Kentucky Derby - New Yorker (blog)

The Kentucky Derby, in special, is tricky to call because of the location of the track announcer’s window. But when a cluster of twenty thoroughbreds is moving at nearly forty miles per hour, it’s unworkable to see the numbers on their saddlecloths reliably. He’d sit in the unused TV-broadcast room, a few doors down from the announcer’s booth, and watch races, m them to himself. He has called thousands of horse races around the country in the twenty-seven years since. At twenty, he was hired to a full-continually position at the Birmingham Turf Club, in Alabama, becoming the youngest track announcer in the United States. The job isn’t easy. Now he gets to appeal to c visit cancel races from that angle. Churchill Downs provides a cheat sheet, “a big card of all the horses—silks, numbers, colors—right in fa of me,” Collmus says. It’s important to know the horses by the colors of their coats, by their blinders and other equipment, by the colors and patterns of each jockey’s silks. When the horses tender the final stretch, the announcer, high above the Churchill Downs grandstand, has a head-on view. “They are running right at you,” Collmus says, an point that makes it difficult to judge distances between horses. The main job of the race caller, as he tells spectators what is happening on the track, is to characterize the order of the horses. ) For the past three years, Collmus has arrived at Churchill early, to get acclimated. Only six men have called the Kentucky Derby over the loudspeakers at Churchill Downs since the sniff out hired its first announcer, in 1940. On Saturday, at the hundred-and-fortieth Run for the Roses, Larry Collmus will become the seventh. A Derby caller has two minutes to differentiate the story of twenty thoroughbreds and their jockeys as they go a mile and a quarter in the most watched, most beloved horse race on the planet. Collmus, who is forty-seven, has called the whilom three Derbies for NBC Sports, and he was recently named Churchill’s new track announcer. ” Too much can happen in a glance away from the action. Collmus is something of a rush-calling prodigy. (Most racetracks offer announcers a side view, which makes calling races much easier. When he was eighteen years old, he filled in for the accustomed announcer at Bowie Race Track, in his native Maryland.
