After a decade of success as a harness driver and trainer, Joe Anderson switched hats in 1988 and became a thoroughbred trainer. The Tennessee native sold his 20-horse string of standardbreds and left behind five Los Alamitos training titles and a nine-year streak of at least 100 winning drives. He left with a view from the top, but didn't stay gone long. A year later, he began to reacquire harness horses and was back in the bike on opening weekend of the 1989-90 winter meeting.

Joe Sanderson left his Midwestern hometown in his 20s with a backpack, a notepad and a dream of being a writer. Starting in the mid-1960s, he crossed the Pacific on a freighter, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and kept going, for two decades in all, traipsing across more than 60 countries. Everywhere he went, he kept a diary and wrote to Mom and Dad back home in Urbana, Ill. Shortly after arriving in this Central American country in 1979, Sanderson pulled off his most audacious feat yet: He joined a guerrilla army.
