Mark M. Hanna, born in 1953 in Hinsdale Illinois to a military family. Conceived in Naples Italy and shipped back to the states 8 months after conception on a naval destroyer, Mark’s parents moved around until his father’s death to cancer when he was 6. Living in Inglewood California with his widowed mother adjacent to Hollywood Park horse race track, the horses beckoned Mark into a life pursuing his passion, ultimately, the Arabian horse. Through heartbreak, triumph, defeat and perseverance, Mark pursued his dream following a path contrary to his innate voice that asked him to have courage, be kind and true to himself. This path resulted in damaging the horses mental and spiritual welfare.
