The Next Horseplayer Monthly Is Shaping Up, Thanks to Many of You

As many of you know, we've embarked on the new Horseplayer Monthly emagazine. If you have not read the last issue, just click here and you can, for free.

It's truly a labor of love, and the writers and folks who have offered content, have done so for no payment. Our advertisers, like, took a shot with us, too, which is so appreciated.

A week or so after the release we asked you what you'd like to see in upcoming issues, and you responded. We have incorporated some of those suggestions in this issue.

You wanted to know about how someone makes a living betting racing, and this month we have a feature story on Lexington, KY's Mike Maloney, who is doing just that, and has so for some time. We hope his insight will help you become a better horseplayer.

You wanted to know what a newbie thought about horse racing? Many of you have watched the sport for many years, so it is interesting to read something like that. We asked that question on twitter and found one. We hope you find it interesting.

You said you wanted to patronize tracks that make you feel welcome as a customer. What better to preview than the Keeneland meet? We had our crack horseplayer team look at the last three Keeneland Fall meets and provide a comprehensive stat pack for next Friday's opener. Some of these statistics you will not find anywhere.

One of you asked for a little bit of harness racing handicapping content, so we asked HANA member and handicapper Garnet Barnsdale to write and he said yes. We now have a Harness racing column for those of you who enjoy betting that sport, or are a crossover bettor.

We'll have much more for the release next week of October's edition. We are thrilled with the feedback, the shares on twitter and facebook and at tracks, and we thank you for doing it. For industry sites like the Paulick Report and Bloodhorse, we appreciate the mentions, and for chat sites like who have allowed us to promote the e-mag, we can't say thanks enough times.

We look forward to delivering issue two in your inbox next Wednesday. For those who have not signed up for it, you can here.* For those who need to update their preferences you can at that link as well. For existing folks on the list, if you have not been getting the emag, please ensure we are not being delivered to spam folders. That happens to all of us usually.

Thank you again, and we hope you enjoy the next issue.
