Southern Racehorse magazine today announced that it will provide coverage of the Thoroughbred industry in Georgia and South Carolina in partnership with the Georgia Horse Racing Coalition and South Carolina Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association. In addition to covering the industry in those two states, the magazine will include important updates and news from each organization and will be mailed to their members and supporters.
Southern Racehorse (www.americanracehorse.com) has similar agreements with the Texas Thoroughbred Association and Thoroughbred Racing Association of Oklahoma and also covers the Thoroughbred industry in Louisiana.
“Both Georgia and South Carolina have a long and rich history of Thoroughbred racing, breeding and training, even though neither currently has pari-mutuel racing,” said Denis Blake, Editor and Publisher of Southern Racehorse. “That tradition continues to this day, as Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Mucho Macho Man is Georgia’s hometown horse, and the Aiken, Camden and Elloree areas of South Carolina offer some of the finest training centers in the world. We aim to highlight the accomplishments of the horsemen, horsewomen and horses associated with Georgia and South Carolina.”
The Georgia Horse Racing Coalition (www.gahorseracing.org) is a group of leading business executives who love horse racing that have joined in an effort to bring first class horse racing to the state of Georgia. Their goal through private investment and no tax-related or state funds is to bring to Georgia a state-of-the-art entertainment complex built around horse racing.
“We are very excited to be part of Southern Racehorse and look forward to sharing our stories for years to come,” said Georgia Horse Racing Coalition Executive Director Steven Crayne.
The South Carolina Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (www.sctoba.org) operates with the goal of promoting the Thoroughbred industry throughout the state and region while highlighting the positive aspects of breeding, training and racing.
“SCTOBA looks forward to our partnership with Southern Racehorse,” said SCTOBA President Lee Christian. “It will provide a great platform for what is going on in training and breeding in South Carolina.”
