Around the Horn With the TBA

By Frank Vespe, That's Amore Stable

It's a busy week among the bloggers of the Thoroughbred Bloggers Alliance, what with important stories developing both nationally and internationally.

Since the TBA includes nearly four dozen bloggers keeping an eye on the racing scene.  Sometimes that's a jaundiced eye, or a skewed one, but an eye nevertheless.  In any case, we've got plenty of folks with plenty of opinions about plenty of issues.

If you're looking to get caught up on some international racing and issues, check out Striding Thoroughbreds in Japan.  From the Philippines comes Go Girl Racing, and if you're like me, you probably said something like, "I didn't know there was racing there," except, of course, now you do.  Jen Morrison's Jen's Thoroughblog ably represents our neighbors to the north, as does CanGamble, the "Can" being short for, you guessed it, Canadian.

Several bloggers are currently following the Race Track Industry Program symposium in Arizona.  Patrick, of Handride "fame," is participating on a panel about blogging.  Dana, who purports to be Green but Game, has her own thoughts, plus advice on how to follow the symposium yourself.  Alan at Left at the Gate has also been keeping an eye on the proceedings, as has Pull the Pocket, which also covers the sulky side of things.

A few of our bloggers are also owners, and a couple of them have weighed in on the vagaries of horse ownership this week.  Visit Gathering the Wind to see Winston (Not really)'s thoughts on how accountants spoil all our fun, while Ted at Owning Racehorses suggests that perhaps accountants aren't so bad, after all, or at least not bad enough to spoil the fun of racing.

Of course, this is just a smattering of what's going on with the TBA.  With so many different people weighing in, you're sure to find someone to agree with - and someone to disagree with, too.
