No single individual has done more to positively impact his fellow horseplayers in recent years than Chris Larmey. In 2015, Larmey joined 2016 Hall of Fame inductee Judy Wagner in Washington, D.C., to represent horseplayers as the NTRA advocated on Capitol Hill for modernization of tax regulations related to withholding and reporting of pari-mutuel winnings. Those regulations became law last September and the positive impacts were immediate and pronounced, with some industry estimates suggesting that the new regulations could raise wagering handle by as much as $1 billion annually. A native of Kennewick, Wash., Larmey is a 12-time qualifier to the NHC. He serves as Chairman of the NHC Players’ Committee and is an active participant in the NHC Mentor Program.
