horse racing writing.  horse racing enthusiasm.

My name is Nicolle Neulist.  I live in Chicago, and I write about horse racing.

Between Palace Malice’s Belmont win and my first trip to the Arlington Million, I fell in love with the sport in 2013.  I have lived and breathed horse racing ever since.  I now work for Equibase as a chart caller during the Hawthorne spring and Arlington summer meets, write about racing in Chicago and beyond, and host the Chicago Race of the Day podcast!

I am available for freelance writing work in the horse racing industry.  If you have a project on the horizon, please contact me so we can chat about what you need!

In addition to here, I have written for a wide range of horse racing sites including Picks and PonderingsBrisnet, TwinSpiresEquestricon, and the Illinois Harness Horsemen’s Association.

I also vote on the NTRA Top Thoroughbred polls, a weekly survey of the national Thoroughbred horse racing media.
