My Dad was a horse trainer in the Nebraska circuit during the 50's and 60's. Ray rode horses for him many times. I have many win pictures of Ray. I was 9 thru 12 at that time . He was a nice person and according to my Dad a good Jockey. He had a small dog I took care of for him. Wanted to send our sympathy for the loss of your father. The Santage Family
