Derby Contenders

Christopher T. Dunn and Loooch Racing Stable, Inc.

Christopher Dunn from Castleton NY grew fond of the horse industry from spending summers in Saratoga Springs. Knew his future was bright after subsidizing part of college tuition from gambling on the ponies. After finding success in the surgical robot market, was rewarded the opportunity to enter into the claiming game in NY. Blessed to have a supporting wife and two loving children.

Loooch Racing Stable, Inc. is owned by Ron Paolucci who is a lifelong racetracker, introduced to racing and gambling by his father and grandfather at a young age.  Paolucci resides in Stow, Ohio, but splits his time in Las Vegas and is anything but conservative when wagering whether it's poker, slots or horseracing.  As a teen, Paolucci was one of the best high school baseball players in the state of Ohio, but he blew off his studies and professional baseball scouts to gamble.  All he cares about is horses which led him to investing in them in 2011, and he now owns 50 to 60 horses.  Paolucci's biggest bet was in Ria Antonia's Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies race, when he wagered $6,000 and walked away with $700,000.
