A true gentleman, Barry started training (and riding – true story) harness horses back in 1978 but switched to thoroughbreds in the early nineties. Barry is best known for his willingness to run horses back on short rest, a trick he learned with the trotters. There is no trainer who understands the financial structure of the industry and all Barry cares about are his horses and making money for his owners.
