Michael Amo has been a Thoroughbred horseracing enthusiast for over 30 years. He was first introduced to the sport by a friend who took him to the 1978 Belmont Stakes. He was soon hooked. Traveling the country attending racing meets became his regular vacation away from a career as a hospital administrator. In the early eighties he took-up temporary residence in Saratoga Springs for the summer meets. In 2000 he bought a second residence, walking distance from the Clubhouse entrance to the Saratoga Race Course. He has served on the Board of a number of not-for-profit organizations. He is co-owner of a health care consulting business and a published author. He is an elected County Legislator in Orange County, New York since 1998 serving on a range of statutory committees including the Legislature’s Off-Track Betting Committee. The combination of his love for racing, management skills, not-for-profit experience and political acumen lead to his co-founding of ThoroFan.
