No, not for frog juice. (I’ll leave the negatives for another day.)
Grantland published a terrific interview with musician-chartcaller-reporter Bob Nastanovich that includes this great quote about why he’s working in racing:
So I started working thinking that I could make a positive impact on the sport at different levels, just because I love it so much.
Love the attitude, Bob.
Also praiseworthy: The Breeders’ Cup and Hello Race Fans, two organizations I believe are working in horse racing’s best interests (and not just because they both pay me), are partnering up on fan education. Nice work, all.
Via @sidfernando comes this news of retired rider Richard Migliore:
Rich wants to start racing partnership. A more intimate partnership. #
The name of The Mig’s racing venture is called Pantheon Racing. Look for website and brochure this week, hopefully, Mig said. #
The Mig: “We want people to have great relationships and experiences. Want to show what it’s like participating in industry.” #
Good luck, Mig!
