On the most recent episode of CBS’s Undercover Boss, William C. Carstanjen worked “undercover” at Churchill Downs. In the video below, he learns that his “boss” has an angel named Megan – a daughter he recently lost. If this video doesn’t choke you up, check your pulse.
Unfortunately, the video cuts off before the sweetest part. Each episode of Undercover Boss ends with the big reveal, when employees discover they’ve been working with the boss. The boss in question generally tries to do what they can to make life a little better for these employees. Great stuff.
Willaim Carstanjen bestowed raises, promotions, and he even stepped up employee security. In the case of the jockey valet in the video below, Carstansjen named a memorial race at the track after his much beloved daughter. The grieving father was also invited to come to the winners circle, and bring any family members he chose to and present the winner’s trophy.
And they say there’s nothing good on tv anymore. Horse feathers.
