The Fancy Hat Veneer

by J.R. Anderson

The Fancy Hat Veneer is a broad stroke collection of articles, blogs, reports, statistics, and personal stories from the world of Thoroughbreds, horse racing, and breeding. It takes you behind the scenes to the world the racing public never has the opportunity to see and most certainly never hears about. Within these pages the reader will learn and begin to understand the inner workings and underbelly of racing and Thoroughbred breeding. Most importantly the reader will, perhaps for the first time, understand the journey of racehorses before, during, and after their racing careers.
