As we approach the 2017 Minnesota racing season Facebook memories reminded me of a nice article published by Horse Racing Nation 3 years ago. It featured Christina Zurick talking about racing from the eyes of a then 18 year old. She had very nice things to say about Minnesota, Canterbury, our trainer Gary Scherer and even a couple of our Minnesota bred horses.
What I found interesting is that this young 18 year old suggested racing needed to improve breeding, communication and methods for bringing new owners to racing. These are the same issues I have strongly stressed in Minnesota for over a decade.
Anyway, I thought a few of you would enjoy the article so here is the link. Enjoy.
