Long time no post!  I’ve been busy traveling and staying out here on the East Coast in New Jersey.  I’ve been fortunate to get to do some announcing at beautiful Monmouth Park and have been documenting my travels with short videos on Youtube.  Here are links to a few and if you get a chance hit the subscribe button so you can know when new videos come out!  Thanks!  Jason

I read this book this morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had read Ms. Caldwell's other book Legs Get Led Astray and was so impressed with the intimacy of her writing. Women is an extremely fast read but it's also an emotionally draining and excitin ...more

"Growing up in racing I've seen a lot of people like the main character Ryan, come and go. Mostly go. What resonates with this story however, is the fact that we humans are flawed. Greatly, greatly flawed. We're not necessarily bad people, but we a..." Read more of this review »
