Eric Wing is the senior director of media relations for the NTRA. He is an avid horseplayer and has also dabbled in ownership. By far, his most successful wagers over the years have been future book bets - both in racing and in sports.
Prior to joining the NTRA in 1999, Wing worked for 13 years as an editor at Reader's Digest. His work experience thus far has supported the old adage that a bad day at the racetrack beats a good day anywhere else.
