After recent discussions with Minnesota horse people regarding the industry, and folks looking for advice ranging from breeding to wagering to the understanding of variation, I decided the best way to help others be successful would be to open up a public you tube channel. (Yep, I know everybody's doing it but I'll bet you don't know too many 64 year olds who are....Haha.)
Anyway, the easiest way to get information out to family and friends, offer video updates, present educational opportunities on a huge variety of subjects, develop understanding of statistical analysis, and even learn about critical Minnesota based issues that need to be tackled by the Thoroughbred racing and breeding industry, will be on this channel. Why? Because videos and presentations are easily viewed on You Tube, and easier to understand and prepare than written documents.
Simply go to the following link and subscribe to the channel I just established. (Family and friends, you'll even find a couple of videos of our horses winning stakes races on the channel playlist.)
This costs nothing of course because I always offer knowledge freely to those who sincerely want help related to the pastime we love. By subscribing to the Astar Thoroughbreds Channel the information will flow to you more easily, and you can access the channel anytime. While the channel is just framed out now, there will be much more information added to the channel very soon.
Oh, and for my older family and friends who aren't quite as accepting of new technology, go to You Tube, sign up and establish your password if you want. You'll be amazed at the videos that can teach you much more than you ever wanted to know on just about any subject you can imagine. (Start by searching Glozell and the cinnamon challenge for a great laugh.) Trust me on this. There is a massive informational world that awaits.
