STEVE HASKIN TO BE FRIDAY'S GUEST ON BLOODHORSE.COM "TALKIN' HORSES"
LEXINGTON, Ky. - Blood-Horse senior correspondent Steve Haskin returns to BloodHorse.com "Talkin' Horses" at BloodHorse.com/TalkinHorses for a special Belmont Stakes (gr. I) preview on Friday, May 23, at noon EDT (9:00 a.m. PDT), sponsored by TrueNicks.com. Now that Big Brown has won the first two jewels of the Triple Crown and moved on to New York, Haskin will be spending plenty of time on the Belmont backstretch, watching Big Brown and his challengers as they prepare for the Test of Champions.
Haskin is an award-winning Turf writer renowned for his Kentucky Derby commentary, with weekly articles, Classic Spotlights, and the "Derby Dozen" all found on the BloodHorse.com website's Triple Crown Mania section. Previously, during his nearly three decades at Daily Racing Form, Steve made a name with his "Derby Watch" columns.
Haskin-who has won five Red Smith Awards for his Kentucky Derby coverage-is the author of Horse Racing's Holy Grail - The Epic Quest for the Kentucky Derby and biographies of Dr. Fager, John Henry, and Kelso-all published by Eclipse Press. Haskin's new book, "Tales from the Triple Crown," also published by Eclipse Press, takes readers behind the scenes and up-close to the horses, jockeys, and trainers seeking racing's most elusive prize. Each publication is available online through ExclusivelyEquine.com.
