Horse racing inspires a certain prolificacy among those who write about it.  It is inevitable: after all, a race card contains eight or more races a day, and any race is going to have at least as many stories behind it as there are horses entering the starting gate.  Even though most of my focus stays with Chicago racing, Curlin babies, and the odd stakes race elsewhere, there have been no shortage of reasons to write since Blinkers Off began in January 2014.

Beyond Race Day:  These include columns, features, and observations beyond individual races.

Races:  These include handicapping previews and race recaps: writing tied to individual races.

Breeding:  These include articles that focus on breeding or pedigree.

Handicapping:  These do not cover handicapping a single race, but speak to handicapping strategy more broadly.

Verse:  Sometimes, horse racing inspires poetry.
