You'll want to flip through the pages of the January issue as soon as it hits your mailbox. Don't miss a single nomination deadline or stallion auction, because TRJ has a bunch again this month!

With those deadlines taken care of, dive into the issue to prepare for the coming months. If you're tempted to offer your charges a hot mash on cold mornings, you might want to read our short feature on rethinking the traditional treat. If you're prepping your mare for breeding, a feature form Heather Thomas Smith offers timely suggestions. If you're awaiting a potential champion, be prepared for a worst-case scenario by reading Smith's other article before heading to the foaling shed: "Breath of life: Tips for getting a newborn foal breathing."

If your orientation is more toward the management end of the industry, you'll want to read Betty Prewitt's overview and the TRJ managing editor's notes from the floor of the 38th Annual Symposium on Racing & Gaming.

Yep, everybody will find something useful or interesting in this month's issue, including the news briefs and updates you've come to expect, personality profiles, a stakes roundup, and results from live meets including Los Alamitos, Turf Paradise, and Portland Meadows. The results include great stories and photos from 2011 Oregon Championship Day.
