Readers are Breeders

A recent poll asked The Five-Cross Files readers "Are you a horse owner?"  It turns out that 2 out of 3 readers own at least one horse, and apparently several of you guys own a bunch of ‘em.  Of those non-owners, half of you have had horses previously.

Not surprisingly -- this is a breeding/pedigree-oriented blog, after all -- the largest response was from owners of breeding stock.  58.3% of you, actually.

You can view full results of the poll here.

This week's poll is timely, since we're finishing up the 2-year-olds in training sales.  We're looking at 2-year-olds and trying to decide whether juvenile racing has a positive or negative effect on the Thoroughbred industry.  Make your opinion known: vote here.
