Kentucky Derby, 2013

May 3rd 2013 07:00 pm |

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:

How I’d Bet $100 on the Kentucky Derby (CBS Local)

Kentucky Derby: A Solid Field Of Colts Set For The 2013 Edition (CBS Local)

2013 Kentucky Derby History Watch (Raceday360)

10 Things You Should Know About the Kentucky Derby (Hello Race Fans!)

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!
