Another issue of TRJ is hitting subscribers' mailboxes with news from around the region and beyond. Along with nomination forms and announcements of great sales opportunities, this month's issue brings industry updates, racing news, and stakes results.

Our exclusive regional analysis this month includes an overview of the collapse of an imagined intermountain race circuit. Just five years after purchasing its first property in the Intermountain West, a racing operator is liquidating its last regional holdings.


(Note: For more information about Wyoming Downs, the property scheduled for auction on November 16, click the banner ad at the bottom of the November 11 e-Newsletter.)

This month's industry watch focuses on how a coalition of horsemen's groups communicated with their membership and worked to alert lawmakers to the negative consequences of a proposal to allow barrel racing as a substitute for live Quarter Horse racing to secure a gaming license in Florida. Although the issue directly affects horsemen outside TRJ territory, it indirectly affects the entire North American horseracing industry.

We want racehorses to have careers after they leave the track, so we're excited about The Jockey Club's incentive program for Thoroughbred sport horses, and appreciate that Breeders' Cup owners are offering their support to an adoption program. Read more about it in this month's issue.

Subscribers know they get the latest race roundups from live meets including Turf Paradise, Portland Meadows, Hastings Racecourse, Emerald Downs, and Los Alamitos. News briefs bring readers the latest news ... plus fun facts and special stories about what makes our industry unique.

All this and more in your mailbox each month for less than $3 a month! (International postal rates add to the cost for some subscribers.) We're your info source for the racehorse! Not a subscriber? Subscribe today at http://www.theracingjournal.com/about/subscribe.php.
