Turney McKnight has been an owner, a trainer, an amateur jockey and more. He won the 1982 Maryland Hunt Cup aboard Tong, a horse bred by his mother June. In 1978, McKnight became chairman of the My Lady's Manor Races in Monkton, Md. This year's race, run Saturday, April 15, will be McKnight's last as he retires from the post. In a conversation at WYPR radio (88.1) in Baltimore, McKnight reminisces about the early days, how he got into steeplechasing and where it all fits.
