LEXINGTON, Ky. - Join Jason Shandler, Blood-Horse staff writer and BloodHorse.com blogger, for this week's edition of BloodHorse.com "Talkin' Horses" at BloodHorse.com/TalkinHorses on Thursday, June 5, at noon EDT (9:00 a.m. PDT), sponsored by TrueNicks.com. With Big Brown having won both the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) and Preakness Stakes (gr. I), Shandler will discuss the horse's chances of becoming the first Triple Crown winner in 30 years. He will also help handicappers break down the race and give his opinions on the best way to make money on the race.


Shandler has been writing for The Blood-Horse since 2004, initially covering the Triple Crown quests of Smarty Jones, Afleet Alex and Barbaro from Philadelphia, where he was born and raised. In 2007, he moved to Lexington and joined The Blood-Horse full-time. Specializing as a racing writer, he covers all the Thoroughbred action on a weekly basis. Shandler also hosts the "Triple Crown Talk" blog on BloodHorse.com, where he shares his thoughts about racing and interacts with readers. An avid bettor, he does not claim to be a "professional handicapper," as many so-called experts do, but has been known to hit a few big trifectas in his day and will often focus on finding longshots or value plays.


Shandler was a correspondent and features writer for both NTRA.com and ESPN.com before joining The Blood-Horse.
