SAHorseracing.com reports “South African born and bred, Trevor Denman, will replace Tom Durkin as the race announcer for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships card on November 4 at Churchill Downs. Durkin was not contracted to call the race as the coverage had changed networks.
Ex Kwazulu Natal commentator, Denman is the track announcer at Santa Anita Park, Del Mar, and Fairplex Park. He previously worked on Breeders’ Cup broadcasts as an analyst.
Born in Johannesburg and bred in Kwazulu-Natal, this legend of the sport started calling races at the Greyville, Clairwood and Scottsville in the late 60’s. He was offered a plum position at a leading racing track in the United States in 1983 and has been there ever since.”
