My deepest condolences to Dave, Austin and the rest of Janice's family and friends. I often tell people that the one thing I enjoyed the most about racing was the great people I had the pleasure to meet, work with and become friends with.
Janice was one of the nicest, kindest people ever to work with and went out of the way to help all us in racing whether you were a horsemen/woman or an official didn't matter what the stupid question I asked Janice was always there to help me with that wry smile and she wouldn't break out in full laughter till later that evening during the nights card usually at my expense and I loved every minute of it.
I am shocked and saddened by her passing .
