Happy Derby Weekend! I published a few pieces at other outlets this week that I thought I would share here. I am working on a Derby history post that I hope to publish tomorrow morning.
Here are four articles I authored for Hello Race Fans!, CBS Local, and Raceday360:
Here are a few other Derby-related articles — by others — that I fully endorse:
Danada Farm, home of 1965 Kentucky Derby winner Lucky Debonair : This is a great piece of local history from Heidi Carpenter, published on her blog Through The Eyes of Deaf Equine Fanatic, a site that offers a unique and compelling perspective on horses and racing. A piece she wrote called the “Beauty of Racing Without the Sound” is one of the coolest things I have read this year. Click to check out that post here
Our friend Joe DePaolo wrote a stellar piece for SB Nation titled No Finish Line: Hall of Fame Jockey Gary Stevens Returns to the Track. Please do yourself a favor and click here to give it a read
Hope everyone enjoys a great weekend of racing! Good luck!
