Personal Break – May 2015

Neal at Monmouth

I’ve been dealing with some health issues over the past few months. During this time period I’ve tried to keep the website going with at least one article a week. However, present circumstances require that I have some corrective surgery and take the time to recover.  The good news is that my doctors expect a full recovery and a return to “normal” activities … which for me means getting back to the race track!  With that said, I have been told to expect a few weeks of downtime after the surgery, which will take place the first week of May.  During that time period I will not be posting any new articles.

In the meantime I will be publishing an article a few days before the Kentucky Derby that will provide some thoughts about the Triple Crown races and links to past articles that might help in your preparation for these exciting events.

Enjoy the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes!

P.S. My sincere thanks for all of the kind words and best wishes in the comments section … very much appreciated.

    • Hope you’re having a good recovery, Neal. I enjoy the friendly and educational atmosphere you have here with your site. Great article on the Derby by the way!

  1. I recently started reading your articles and n enjoy them, looks as though our passion for thoroughbred racing began about the same time. Thoughts & prayers are with you, looking forward to future articles in good health!

  2. I would like to wish you much success on your surgery. We’ll miss you and your very informative insights. Fortunately you have left is plenty of material to review.

    See you soon Neal

  3. Sorry to hear about your upcoming need for surgery. Wishing you a speedy and strong recovery. The track will be awaiting your return.

  4. Neal, I second all the comments already posted. You are in my families thoughts and prayers. At times like these its good to remember it’s only a horse race, which is something I try to remind myself when holding a losing ticket. Here’s to a speedy recovery and like any horse, jockey or trainer who can’t make the Triple Crown Circuit, here’s to a strong second half of 2015 at Saratoga and the Breeder’s Cup! All the best.
