I write for my school’s newspaper, but just this summer I have become particularly interested in journalism. Here is an amazing piece of multimedia journalism put together by the New York Times about horse racing and jockey Russel Baze. I highly suggest taking a look at it as well as Snowfall.
I for one am fascinated by horse racing. That may be because I’m a sucker for racing movies (Secretariat, anyone?), but I do not always agree with the treatment of the horses. That’s why I 100% support off the track adoptions and think that a second career and home for these horses who didn’t make it racing is a beautiful thing.
That is just my meek hunter/jumper rider’s opinion of another equine sport…
Let me know what you think!
