Besides having a jockey in the family, Scott was also surrounded by trainers and starters. "Growing up around relatives who were all about winning to make a living, showed me the type of attitude, desire, and work ethic it takes to get the job done, year-after-year. You want to eat? You better know how to win." Scott's proudest achievements took place in front of the Las Vegas betting public. Scott is the only handicapper to advance to three straight Finals in the Station Casinos Football Invitational. In fact, he's the all-time Station Casinos Win Champion.
