Hello Nation! For those of you who don’t know me yet, my name is Brian Zipse, and this is my first blog on Horse Racing Nation.
I am thrilled to be here as the brand new Managing Editor of the fastest growing, and most fan friendly website in the world of horse racing. While I get acclimated to my new surroundings, I plan to hit the ground running. I am amazed at all of the wonderful features here on HRN. I hope that you will take the time to look around and join in the fun. It is truly a fan driven website. The more you participate, the better the Nation becomes. As far as this blog, I started Zipse at the Track in the Summer of 2009, and the good news is … I write a column every single day, or as close to every single day as humanly possible. As the header says, ZATT is here for the love of thoroughbred horse racing. Whether it be handicapping, history, trivia, hot topics, rankings, or a little humor, this blog is all about having fun and celebrating the sport. All I ask of you is to enjoy, and feel free to let me know what you think.
Speaking of you, the people who really matter, I very much look forward to interacting with all of you on the blog, on the website, or on Facebook and Twitter. Friend me on Facebook, and you can Tweet me at: http://twitter.com/#!/Zipseatthetrack. Like Horse Racing Nation on Facebook and on follow on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/#!/HR_Nation.
