A Midwesterner by birth, the trainer moved with his family to California at age 8 … Admitting to “always loving horses,” he grew up in a racetrack atmosphere in Arcadia, not too many furlongs from Santa Anita Park … On the street where he lived were trainers Jimmy Jordan and Ray Bell, the first generation of Bell family trainers … Each summer the family had a trailer at Seaside Park in Solana Beach, of which Sise says, “In the old days, that’s where all the racetrackers stayed.” … Got his first taste of racetrack work as a hot walker for Jordan at age 11 … Rode for about three years in late 1960s before becoming assistant trainer to Lou Glauburg and Noble Threewitt … Got his first trainer’s license in 1970 and recalls he was told he was the youngest person to get such a license in Southern California … Then left the track for about 10 years to operate a catering business in the industrial area around Vernon in southeast Los Angeles … Following that he returned to racing to train on his own … Considers Paying Dues — his multiple-stakes winning sprinter who finished second in 1996 Breeders’ Cup Sprint — the best horse he’s ever trained, saying, “There just hasn’t been anyone else like him” … Trainer is a seven-time stakes winner at Del Mar … Family: wife Lorrie, who keeps the stable books; son Robert, who serves as assistant trainer; daughter Kimberley, who was involved earlier in the Thoroughbred operation.
