The latest edition of Chicago Railbird, my column on Shapperdacapper.com, is out! This week I’m taking a look at defending Arlington jockey champion Emmanuel Esquivel, and handicapping a few interesting races in which he has mounts on Thursday and Friday.
For anyone curious,: Chicago Railbird is the column that I’ve been writing on Shapper da Capper as of last week. It now has a name, which I’m quite excited about! I chose it because it’s short, easy to remember, and evocative of the fact that I spend so much of my free time on weekends hanging around the racetracks here.
