Ed DeRosa

Ed DeRosa is a director of marketing for TwinSpires.com, the official wagering site of the Kentucky Derby and Churchill Downs. Ed joined Churchill Downs Inc. as director of marketing of Brisnet.com in July 2011 following nine years as a writer and editor with Thoroughbred Times.

Before 2015, Ed had never seen a Triple Crown winner; he never saw an Indians World Championship but has high hopes for the Guardians. Ed's favorite horses are Ghostzapper, Rachel Alexandra, Sistercharlie, and Unique Bella.
