If it's not there already, it'll be there soon: the February issue of TRJ—The Racing Journal.
In addition to nomination forms for 2010 stakes races across the region, stallion auction lists, and information about upcoming race meets, here's what you'll find in the February issue:

Ryan Roshau's photos and story describe how South Carolina's Aiken Training Track is still developing champions; Karen Svea Johnson's sidebar introduces readers to one of the track's most familiar silks-owners, Dogwood Stables.

Tom Lewis offers insight to bettors' superstitions in his column, "What's in a name?"

Orlando Gutierrez offers his opinion of Los Alamitos Race Course's Horses of the Decade--a top 10, as well as a generous 25 runners-up.

It's broodmare-watch time again, and Karen Svea Johnson reviews a book that might keep you occupied during the long hours spent waiting for the next champion to arrive.

This year's Eclipse-winning photo, by Jeff Taylor, is reproduced in full color on the inside back cover—and you won't want to miss it!

In "From the Editor's Desk," managing editor Bob Cooke offers observations on the 2010 racing schedule in the Intermountain West and its implications for horsemen and horsewomen across the TRJ region.

As always, readers will find plenty of industry news and race results, too—

Race results from Los Alamitos, Turf Paradise, Rillito Park, Portland Meadows
