On the wall of Eddie Gaudet's office is a photo of him as a jockey sitting atop a winner in Florida in the 1950s. Tucked in among dozens of snapshots and 8-by-10s spread over three walls, is another from 1966 showing Gaudet as the winning trainer at Bowie Race Track. "He's the dark-haired one," Linda Gaudet said, pointing to the photos of her husband. "He was the Dean Martin type. " "They used to call me Dean Martin," Gaudet, 81, said, his eyes twinkling from under a baseball cap. The walls are an historic collage that will be adding more photos in the new year as the longtime Maryland horse trainer hands off his business to his wife and 23-year-old daughter Lacey.
