  1. Doug is missed at Lone Star Park. I’m now working days on the 100 line and wanted y’all to know that almost every day since he’s been away, there is a customer or employee that asks about him. I mostly miss his dry sense of humor and quick wit. God Bless.

  2. I am Humbled and Blessed to have worked with Doug @ LSP. I was honored that he have me train his daughter and have her work my line in the grandstand during live racing.I have always enjoyed seeing Doug @ the Chaplain’s Golf Tournaments in the Spring and Fall.Doug will be missed, by family and friends. As Doug and I would say to each other ” … Go E.J. Go …” as we shared a Love for turf races.God Bless.
