As many of you know by now, I was selected by the Daily Racing Form to cover this season at Canterbury Park on a freelance basis. I wouldn’t put this in the category of getting a new job, but until full time employment comes around again, I will approach this exactly like it is.
The reason for this entry is to delineate what will be occurring here in this space as opposed to what will be written for the DRF. The two spaces need to be very clearly separated. Here, I will continue to chronicle the exploits of Tabby Lane and any other runners we come across for our stable. I will post occasionally on items of interest to me – and hopefully to you – in racing as well as my futile Kentucky Derby pick and my more successful Breeder’s Cup posts. There will be opinions expressed here on a variety of subjects. THIS is the space for opinion, conjecture and racing partnerships.
IT NEEDS TO BE VERY CLEAR THAT ANY OPINIONS EXPRESSED IN THIS SPACE ARE THE VIEWPOINT OF THE AUTHOR, NOT THE DAILY RACING FORM.
Sorry for the caps and bold, but it’s really necessary to make that very clear. My stories for the DRF will be short, factual and mostly previews and recaps of stakes races during the meet. There may be more in-depth previews and recaps here of those races here as space will allow a deeper analysis than I can give in the Form. News items of interest to the racing world emanating from Minnesota will be covered impartially for the Form. Those pages are not the place for my opinion or bias. You can get enough of that here.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to professionally write about racing, especially for the DRF. Thank to Jim Dunleavy for the offer and David Miller and Jeff Maday for being supportive – I’m sure I’ll lean on you all for a while until I get my feet underneath me.
See you on the backside!
