Former Star Tribune horse racing handicapper and author Steve Davidowitz dies

Steve Davidowitz, the Star Tribune’s horse racing writer and handicapper when the sport came to Minnesota, died at his home in Nevada. He was 77.

The news was first reported by the Horse Racing Nation web site.

His son, Brad, told the Daily Racing form in a story: “I’d like to imagine he basically died doing what he loved, that he passed while doing what he loved.  Romantically, I envision that he was writing a story, watching replays preparing for a story. He really enjoyed still being able to do relevant things about horse racing.”
