Dear Beyond the Blinkers readers,
As you know, Triple Crown and Kentucky Oaks season is upon us, and from April 1-May 6, I will be switching the focus of this blog to the Kentucky Oaks.
Like last year, I will be covering this race for the magazine, and through Beyond the Blinkers, I will be updating you with fun features, and behind-the-scenes stories of the Oaks hopefuls and their connections.
If you have any ideas of your own, or fillies you would like to see featured, please email me, or leave a comment with your suggestion.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to again tell you that I am always looking for new blog ideas. After the Oaks, I will most likely be featuring a lot more retired racehorse stories throughout the summer, so if you have an interesting one to tell, please send it my way!
Coming up next week, we’ll have a blog featuring Karma Kitaj, who wrote the book “Women Riders Who Could… and Did: Life Stories of Top Level Equestriennes.” One of the featured subjects in this book is female jockey Julie Krone, who is one of my favorites! I’m looking forward to this interview with Karma, so be on the lookout for a story next week.
In the meantime, send me your thoughts for future blogs, either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by leaving a comment. Thanks readers! I always appreciate and love hearing your opinions and ideas.
