Who the heck is this dude?
Here’s a short bio on me, so you know who it is providing this content and what my qualifications are…
"Jim Mulvihill is a writer, publicist and handicapper based in his native city of New Orleans. His writing on horseracing has appeared in numerous publications, including Thoroughbred Times, The Texas Thoroughbred and The Saratoga Special. As a public handicapper, his daily selections have been published in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram during every Lone Star Park racing season since the 2004 Breeders’ Cup Meeting. He served as the media relations associate and staff writer at Lone Star from 2002 to 2005. Away from the track he is best known as Director of Communications and Marketing at the New Orleans Museum of Art, located three furlongs from Fair Grounds in City Park."
Now that you know a little bit about me, let’s talk about this blog. It’s here for your information and entertainment, so please feel free to keep in touch and tell me what you would like to read about. I can be reached at email@example.com. The e-mail address is a reference to the tip sheet I handicap for, which you can purchase on-track. The name of the tip sheet, of course, refers to Black Gold, the 1924 Louisiana Derby and Kentucky Derby winner buried in the Fair Grounds infield.
Thanks to huge purses augmented by slot machine proceeds, this should be a historic season at Fair Grounds with racing on a level never before seen in New Orleans. Hope to see you out at the track soon!
