ABR Wired: Turf, Surf and Unthinkable Upset


Jamie Reidy is a University of Notre Dame graduate (1992), a U.S. Army veteran and an accomplished author. He’s attended the Kentucky Derby 10 times yet he had never attended a day at the races at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club until this past Saturday.

Follow along as Jamie and his pal, PJ Mastracchio, enjoy a memorable day where the turf meets the surf, topped by the unthinkable upset of Arrogate. Reidy’s first book “Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman” served as the basis for the 20th Century Fox feature film “Love and Other Drugs,” which was directed by Edward Zwick and stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Jamie and Anne Hathaway as a patient-turned-love interest. Reidy’s latest book, “Need One!” is a hilarious and heartfelt road trip memoir chronicling his quest to attend 365 sporting events in 365 days.
