Sudden Passing of Horse Racing Writer Art Parker, a Cornerstone of Agameofskill.com

Handicapper Art ParkerWe are so deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our friend Art Parker, who was a great writer and friend of the sport. Art loved horse racing and for years he wrote handicapping and fan articles for agameofskill.com. The truth is that the site would likely not exist today without Art’s assistance over the years.  He provided great content when I was simply to busy to do so due to work and family obligations.
Sadly, I never got to meet Art in person as he lived in another state; in fact, one without a racetrack. But we talked numerous times on the phone, and like what happens so often in the sport of horse racing, our mutual love for the game made us friends for life.
Art Parker, who was a long-time editor of newspapers in Montgomery Alabama, passed from complications from a car accident.  Art was the epitome of a true gentleman.  He was kind, intelligent, a great family man, and I never heard him say a bad word about anyone. He will be greatly missed.
Please lift up prayers for his wife and family.
God speed Art.
