From the KY HBPA Media Team:

The Kentucky HBPA, in conjunction with Kentucky Downs and Ellis Park, for the sixth year is underwriting the creation of supplemental video and written content distributed free to media on the run-up to and from the Breeders’ Cup Nov. 5-6 at Del Mar. The content will largely focus on Kentucky-based horses and horsemen.
The majority of videos will be housed on the Kentucky HBPA Youtube Channel. Media members, as well as racing fans and enthusiasts, can get the coverage delivered straight into their inbox by emailing a request to Jennie Rees at [email protected].
Content, unless otherwise noted, is produced by veteran turf writer and racing publicist Jennie Rees. This venture is separate from any official Breeders’ Cup press offerings.
