Equestricon Blog: Win a Trip to the Hong Kong International Races!

Have you ever dreamed of going to the Hong Kong International Races (HKIR)?  If so — you’re going to want to pack your bags for Saratoga and attend Equestricon from August 13-15.  In my latest blog for Equestricon, I talk about the HKIR Lucky Draw: a drawing, sponsored by the Hong Kong Jockey Club, that will award one lucky Equestricon attendee an expenses-paid trip with one friend to this year’s Hong Kong International Races!

(Seriously, writing that blog post has already made me so envious of whoever wins this drawing, and so ready to follow their Twitter obsessively during HKIR week.)

If you’re on the fence about going to Equestricon…read my blog post, get excited about HKIR, and if there’s any way you can get up to Saratoga next month, book your tickets!

Equestricon Blog: Women Horseplayers Stand Out at Featured Equestricon Seminar

Women handicappers are not a monolithic group, and the seminar highlights that. The panel features horseplayers with expertise in everyday live-money wagering, as well as structured contest play. Each panelist followed a different path to becoming a horseplayer, and has crafted their own style for analyzing races. This variance in perspectives makes the panel even more valuable.

This year’s Equestricon features a panel of leading female horseplayers: including Barbara Bowley, Emily Gullikson, Theresia Muller, Gabby Gaudet, and Megan Devine.  In my latest piece for the Equestricon blog, you can get to know the panelists, and get excited about their discussion this summer!

Equestricon: Hispanic Leaders Panel

Coming up August 13-15 in Saratoga is Equestricon — a gathering of horse racing people from all over the world.  I’m back on the Equestricon blog today, this time to discuss a panel about Hispanic Leaders in horse racing!

From the racetrack to the sales ring, and everywhere in between, there is a growing role for the hispanic community in our sport.  And, the Hispanic Leaders panel at Equestricon covers all those places.

Head over to the Equestricon blog, read my look at the Hispanic Leaders panel — and see you in Saratoga this summer!
