Tom Hogan began his career as a groom, caring for horses in the Chicago area. Later he drove a horse cab until the advent of motorized cabs, and then became one of the city's first cab drivers, rising to the presidency of Chicago's Yellow Cab Company in 1932. He owned and raced a stable of horses, competing at New York tracks and on the Grand Circuit. Among some of his drivers were Immortals of the sport - Tom Berry, Henry Thomas and Clint Hodgins. Tom Hogan had a training track at Homestead, Florida, south of Miami. He died in 1957 in New York City.
