Collmus to Big A


Larry Collmus, the regular track announcer at Monmouth Park and Suffolk Downs, will call the races at Aqueduct for about seven weeks beginning on Feb. 19, the New York Racing Association said Friday.

Collmus will take the duties normally held by John Imbriale, who will retire next month. Collmus will call the races while regular announcer Tom Durkin is on vacation. Durkin is scheduled to return on April 6.

Collmus, 38, has called races in New York on occasion during the past three years.
