Joe Hernandez More Than an Actor
- Rudolph Alvarado
Joe Hernandez was not only an actor, he was a race caller. Hernandez called the great races of Seabiscuit, Noor, Citation, Round Table, and Cougar II. As a matter of fact most, if not all of his roles on radio and television featured him playing himself, or cast as a race caller. During the 30s, 40s and 50s movies pertaining to horse racing were extremely popular. Joe's voice was featured in the Marx Brothers' Day at the Races and he was a guest star on a number of sitcoms including The Munsters, I Love Lucy, My Favorite Martin and The Beverly Hillbillies. His life story has been preserved in the biography The Untold Story of Joe Hernandez: The Voice of Santa Anita. The book won the 2009 Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award, an award that recognizes thoroughbred horse racing's book of the year. The piece includes some information pertaining to Joe's involvement in radio and film.
