By Jude T. Feld One night, in 1955, my dad is sitting in a bar in Glendale, California, having a post-softball game beer with his teammate, Ed Deter. The subject turned to horseracing, as it most often does when a Feld is present. Deter said, “Jack, have you ever thought about owning a horse?” Believe it or not, the thought had never really crossed Dad’s mind.
