Among the many talented young professionals in the world of racing, there are few as dynamic as Claudia Elena Spadaro. Born in Venezuela, Spadaro has developed a multi-national following as her star has grown in the U.S. as one of the main handicappers and on-air personalities for HipicaTV.

Spadaro is based at Gulfstream Park, not far from her alma mater at the University of Miami. We sent her some questions so that we could get to know her a little better.
