Railbird Style: How old is the Curse of Apollo?

Today, Jessica Chapel and I launched Railbird Style, a guide to style and usage in turf writing.  Jessica wrote an introduction to our project.  And, since the term has been ubiquitous in Kentucky Derby discourse, I took a deep dive into the history of the Curse of Apollo in the world of horse racing.

To keep following Railbird Style, make sure to follow @railbirdstyle on Twitter — we plan to have content to interest both turf writers as well as any reader curious about the language in turf writing.
