Goldencents was indeed golden, when making history in the Breeders Cup Dirt Mile.
Posted Friday, October 24, 2014

Racing needs its new fans to stay. It cannot afford to let the "bad apples" chase them out. Our words have the potential to embrace or hurt, to give a new fan the first impression that tells them whether they should stay or go. Let us make sure that we give them a good and welcoming first impression.

Don't take my word for it, take a look at the beauty and pageantry of Delaware Park at its finest!
Posted Friday, July 11, 2014
As Princess of Sylmar looks to add her name to the growing list of top class mares that have taken Delaware Park's prized jewel, I find myself thinking back to when another small, plucky chestnut filly ran, in what would what would later be named the race of the year, and what was the last race in what would be a terrific rivalry.....Blind Luck.

For as long as i can remember I have always loved horses and writing. The first race I ever watched was War Emblem's Preakness Stakes, but I didn't really start to get into racing until the next year where watched and cheered Empire Maker through the Derby, and yes, the Belmont.

I didn't begin writing until a few years later, when I created my own blog Horsin' Around. It didn't take long for me to realize that my niche was stirring the pot and creating heated debates, especially during the time of Big Brown vs Curlin and Rachel Alexandra vs Zenyatta. I was a Curlin and Rachel fan.

Now I am here under the name of Dead Heat Debates, and hoping to live up to that name. Have fun and let the opinions fly!
