Chicago Railbird: Hero’s and Crooks

I had a blast writing my latest Chicago Railbird column.

There’s little I like more than learning about Illinois breeding, and I noticed that Hero’s and Crooks has his first starter ever in Friday’s Arlington opener.  I wondered how he ended up a sire, even in Illinois, given his modest race record.  So, in addition to handicapping that race, I took a dive into his pedigree to uncover why he ended up standing stud in the first place.  And, I found some interesting things.

Head over to ShapperDaCapper, read the latest Chicago Railbird, and learn about new Illinois sire Hero’s and Crooks before his first runner hits the track!
