'Blacksmith to the Stars' at Ellis Park Tuesday

Todd Boston returns to Ellis Park.
A lot of jobs can take you a lot of places, but one man started his career as a blacksmith at Ellis Park and ended up in Dubai.

    Todd Boston was a ferrier at Ellis as his first job and he's gone on to shoe horses that have won four Kentucky Derbies.  He's also worked on several Horse of the Year Award winners. He even shod horses for Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai, who rides long-distance desert races. Today, Boston spoke to members of the Henderson and Evansville Rotary Clubs.
