But that’s not all. In the June issue of TRJ—The Racing Journal, find exclusive features that take you inside the game—

 * “A legendary race,” by Karen Svea Johnson, presents the results of Lady Legends Race for the Cure, in which eight retired female jockeys participated in one last race—one that has changed the record books forever. In sidebars—

  - A “guest blogger” offers a hardcore fan’s perspective on the race and the participants.
