How did I get into racing?
I've loved horses since 2007. I, an innocent 7 year old, was given the book, Misty of Chincoteague. I fell in love with the wild ponies and became an instant horse-a-holic After reading every book about horses to be found at my public library, I stumbled upon the idea of horse racing around the age of nine. Combining two of my favorite things, horses and competition, I set out to learn everything possible about the history of the Sport of Kings. When I became satisfied that I was knowledgeable, I became a dedicated follower of horse racing. My first Kentucky Derby to watch as a fan was won by Super Saver, a decidedly uninteresting hero, but I soon fell in love with the mighty mare, Zenyatta. I remember crying the day she lost the 2010 Breeders' Cup Classic by a whisker. I was only 10, I failed to see that she gained just as much in defeat as she did in victory. I have only been following horse racing for 5 years (I am now 14), but it is one of my passions. I live in a state where the thoroughbreds are few and far between, and I am used to getting funny looks when I mention that I need to get home to watch the races on T.V., or that I subscribe to something called Bloodhorse magazine. That doesn't bother me, though, I like it better than fashion magazines.
