Biography

Ramey Smyth, 42, was born and raised in Alaska. He is the son of Iditarod mushers Bud Smyth, who raced in the first Iditarod and the late Lolly Medley who raced in the second Iditarod. Ramey has lived all over the state but says he moved to Willow to put down roots and build a home for his family. Ramey has raced the Iditarod 21 times placing in the top 10 nine times. He won the Kuskokwim 300 in 1995 and has raced in, and won, many other events throughout the state. He is a full time log home builder and owns and operates Smyth Logwork and Construction in Willow. He says, “I am entering the Iditarod because I love sled dogs, and I’m building a team to win the Iditarod. I would also like people to be aware of Alaska’s drug and alcohol problems and am racing in honor of abstinence. My mother died at the age of 50 from cancer and I would like people to donate to cancer research any chance they get.” Ramey operates Smyth Racing Team-Homestretch Kennel, which is 70 dogs strong, with his wife Becca Moore and their children, daughter Ava 10 years old, son Banyan 6 years and baby Coral, who will be a year old at race time. Ramey says his hobbies are “subsistence hunting and fishing, all sports and helping family friends.”
