I have some big news to share with you! I would have written about it sooner however I was in an obscure, internet-unfriendly region of Asia observing Mongolian horses in their native habitat. Okay, that's a lie. Actually, I have a cacophony of non-English speaking individuals repairing drywall and painting a number of rooms in my house that the notion of writing a horse racing blog or renewing a subscription to Readers' Digest is a painful process.
So the big news: The Not-Dallas/Fort Worth Star-Telegram (motto: We encourage our subscribers to go on-line to read the news!) recently launched a blog by the turf writer supremo and good friend to Post Parade, Gary West, cleverly entitled West Points. I have conveniently placed his link on the very top of all my links. It should be noted that no money was exchanged for this favor, however should a frozen margarita end up in my possession courtesy of "a friend" sometime during the Lone Star Park Spring Thoroughbred Season, it would be considered inconsequential. Good but inconsequential.
Anyway, the Professor is now available on the world-wide web. He's in the know. He's got Steve Asmussen on speed-dial. He's the guy - the only guy - who uses the word flapdoodle, and he uses it well.
Welcome to the blogosphere, Gary West!
