HRN Original Blog:
Eye on Saratoga
Posted Sunday, April 01, 2012
...in the very near future, this column will be moved to my second blog here on HRN. "The Dish on Arabians" will be a new feature here, and one that I hope will help you, the readers, to learn more about Arabs and the sport--and build an HRN Arabian racing community. Sans further ado, here we go:

When Besilu Stables' Champion, Royal Delta, steps onto the Tapeta at Meydan on Saturday night, she'll enter the gate with some of the world's greatest horses.

Meet Marion

Marion E. Altieri calls herself a racing essayist--this allows her the freedom to write for many racing and other equine-related media, and to use adjectives frequently.  (She loves adjectives.  And absolutely adores alliteration.)  She  served as Editorial Director of  Equicurean magazine for the first two years, and currently writes for several Thoroughbred- and Arabian-related publications:  Desert Mirage, Arabian Finish Line and Galopp Magasinet, to name a few.  

(The most challenging gig of her life was that of editing a book about Iraqi Purebred Arabians--originally written in Arabic, translated into English.  That job stretched her intellectual, spiritual and emotional muscles, she reports--the author became a dear friend, and a colleague with whom she'd love to work, anytime.)  She has blogs on Saratoga.com and SaratogaRaceTrack.com, and continues to wait for her opp to write the screenplay for The Next Great Horse Racing Movie.   She's jazzed about "Eye on Saratoga"--bringing Saratoga workouts, racing, etc., to your HRN doorstep--and to "The Dish on Arabians," a new blog about an ancient breed.  

She's thrilled about joining the HRN team--to be a member of the Nation--and looks forward to a long, healthy and horse-ful relationship with her colleagues.
