In honor of Tom Durkin’s retirement from race calling on August 31, we are taking a look back at 40 of his most memorable calls–one for each day of the 2014 Saratoga meet.
Before Tom Durkin was the voice of NYRA, he was at Hialeah Park. And long before Doremifasolatido and Ohnoitsmymothernlaw, there was Yakahickamicadola.
Right from the start, Durkin appreciated the absurdity of this name and just started calling gibberish. For my money it’s Durkin’s funniest call.
