How does one person go from training horses racing for $2,000 purses at tracks in the Maritimes to running a corporate media training company and training one of the most impressive horses in harness racing?

Writer Bill Finley's New York Times article on Muscle Hill's trainer Greg Peck looks at how Peck, a native of Nova Scotia, is a natural multi-tasker that notices similarities between training corporate executives and training standardbreds.

“It’s about reading body language,” Peck told the New York Times. “Horses can’t talk to you, so you have to understand their body language. That’s the only way to make them better. It’s really not that different with an executive."

Peck's Muscle Hill heads into today's Hambletonian as the favourite, with some high praise heaped on his charge from many industry participants.

“I’ve had some of the top trotting guys tell me that this is the best trotter they have ever seen, bar none,” stated Peck.
