Louis Cauz is the founder of the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame. He started as a sports reporter for the Hamilton Spectator in the 1940's before moving to Toronto to work for the Globe and Mail in 1957 as their harness handicapper. He authored three books -- Baseball's Back in Town, The Plate: A Royal Tradition, and The Plate: 150 Years of Royal Tradition (co-authored with Beverley Smith). He also served as the official scorer for the Toronto Blue Jays, serving in that role during the team's World Series championships in 1992 and 1993.

In the Hall's infancy he was left with such tasks as producing a master list of candidates for consideration. Later, he developed the "Legends" program, a millennium project to honour heroes of the past, of which there are 4 inductees this year.

He stepped down as Managing Director of the Hall last year, and remains the Hall's Director Emeritus.
