A native of New York, Howard Zucker has been training Thoroughbreds for more than 35 years, beginning at racetracks on the east coast before relocating to California in 1983. He has developed and trained stakes horses such as Crafty C.T. (Grade 2 winner and 5 times Grade 1 placed), Madame Pietra (Grade 3 winner and winner of the Sunshine Millions Filly & Mare Sprint), Awesome Daze, Moscow Changes (California Juvenile Champion), Our Shining Hour (Sunny Slope S.), Synnin and Grinnin, Queen of the Catsle (multiple stakes winner and Grade 3 winner), and Well Monied (Grade 2 winner and Grade 1 placed twice). While he truly loves developing young stock, Zucker considers every horse as an opportunity and maintains an average of 16 Thoroughbreds at the track. A very accessible trainer, he is always happy to spend time educating new owners and has provided his expertise at industry educational seminars and conformation clinics numerous times. He works with a wireless security camera system in the barn, which provides 24-hour oversight of his stable as well as a convenient way for owners to check in on their horses. Zucker is former Vice President of the California Thoroughbred Trainers and spent many years as head of its Track Safety Committee. He holds a B.A. in Economics with a minor in Biology from City College of New York and resides in Pasadena, California with his wife, Lorraine.
