Awesome Citifest can jump, he should be a grandprix jumper not an event horse. IMHO

This is a good move!!


The Jockey Club has amended Rule 18 of the Principal Rules and Requirements of The American Stud Book from "Sold Without Pedigree" to "Sold as Retired from Racing" so an owner can retire a Thoroughbred from racing without affecting its breeding privileges, it was announced Feb. 27.

Under the previous Rule 18, the Certificate of Foal Registration for a horse sold without pedigree was returned to The Jockey Club and canceled, and the horse was no longer considered a Thoroughbred for breeding or racing purposes.

This is great!!

Twitter enhances fan experience

According to Kelly Wietsma, whose public relations firm Equisponse works with well-known racing outfits like Starlight Racing, in many cases fans are getting information via Twitter "straight from the horse's mouth."

"Someone running that account who is in the barn, around the horse every day, is going to be able to offer a very well-informed connection," Wietsma said.

That's a neat video.  Things have been tough for Maryland racing, I'm glad to see this guy invest in it's future.

Thanks!  Will watch it tomorrow - I'm so glad they are revitalizing it... the industry needs good things.... I am so depressed seeing Vinery's sale ad (you can check out the link on their website - www.vinery.com - it honestly gets me all emotional seeing the pics of the empty barns...)
