About Me

John Hernandez

I have been involved in thoroughbred racing for almost three decades. My first job in racing was at the inaugural Hollywood Park Fall/Winter Meet in 1981 when Nat Wess hired me to run the press box.

Since then, I have worked at all three major Southern California racetracks, primarily at Del Mar, as a radio results announcer and media liason.

I have also hosted a handful of different racing radio broadcasts, including the very first talk show on the legendary San Diego Sports giant XTRA Sports 690.  More recently, I have served as a guest host on Jason Levin‘s popular Inside Racing broadcast on KLAC AM570 Los Angeles.
