Welcome to my Blog

Welcome everybody, handicappers and racing fans, to my new blog, Quarter Horse Racing. I think the title says it all. As a fan, handicapper and occasional bettor, I hope be able to give you all the updates on the sport. I will try to give the news from meets all across North America, from Ajax to Los Alamitos, from Ruidoso to Hialeah.
I will also blog race analysis once in a while, from tracks I enjoy, and (assuming someone asks) a requested card of racing. I will occasionally discuss Thoroughbred racing, and harness racing on big nights (i.e. Breeder's Crown, Hambletonian, etc.)
Enjoy, and thanks for reading.
