This is my first official post for the Club and I’m very excited to get the ball rolling. I’ve spent some time reviewing past posts and getting a feel for the Club operation. It’s my goal to build upon the success that Andrew and Jeff have had with the group and not stray much from the winning formula.
More information will follow in the coming weeks as we gather members and start to get a feel for how many horses we will run this year. We’ll discuss strategies for claiming and race placement, racing terminology, condition books and any other topics that come up in the course of the season.
Please feel free to comment with any questions you may have. The odds are pretty good that if you have a question, someone else in the group is thinking about the same thing. If you feel a bit uncomfortable putting yourself out there, then feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll shoot you a note back or design a post around your question if it seems to have mass appeal.
If you’ve been a member for a few years, it may seem like some topics are being repeated, but don’t forget, this is supposed to be a learning experience so please be patient. I know that I’ve been around this game for a long time and I learn something new with every season. Every season, every horse, brings something new and different and should provide us with some exciting and interesting moments.
Memberships are now being accepted for the 2013 Club. If you have been involved previously, welcome back – you obviously enjoyed your experience so why don’t you bring a friend or two along this year? The more members we can get this season, the more horses we’ll be able to run so the more frequently we’ll be at the races watching our horses run!
