Who is 
Brian Spearman? 


Brian Spearman was born in New Jersey, but grew up in the premier racing city, Saratoga Springs, NY.  As a young man, Spearman would attend the Saratoga races by day, and visit his dad who worked as a Pinkerton security guard in the evenings during the annual historic meet.  Subsequent seeds of his passion were planted when he worked at the Saratoga Race Course during the summers of his college years.  Also during college, Spearman and his friends frequented Churchill Downs, Pimlico and Belmont, in addition to Saratoga, to watch the classics in-person as often as they could. 


After graduating from Fordham University in 1984, he set aside his passion for all things racing as he set out on his career with PepsiCo.
