The racing scene has a newcomer on the track as Jockey World made its debut on the web this summer. Created by retired jockey Frank Lovato Jr., the site offers info & resources to those interested in a career (or just interested) in the racing industry.
This is essentially a social network. You do have to subscribe to have access to most of the information, but it doesn’t require much beyond an email address & a name. Subscribing allows you to meet and mingle with industry experts, including jockeys, exercise riders, trainers – all willing to share their knowledge & experience.
