A new website dedicated to jockeys and a jockey of the week award will debut on July 14. JockeyTalk360.com will offer a unique blend of news, features, social media and statistics that will appeal to racing's casual fans, as well as seasoned handicappers.
JockeyTalk360 is collaborating with the Jockeys' Guild and other industry partners to bring fans closer to racing's talented and fearless athletes. A majority of the revenue generated by the site is earmarked for the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund.
“We are pleased to be able to collaborate with the entire JockeyTalk360.com team to bring this site and its related activities to racing fans,” said Jockeys' Guild National Manager Terry Meyocks. “The site will help to feature jockeys from across the nation, and will also help us build a larger fan base for racing throughout the country.”
A regular feature of the site will be the JockeyTalk360.com Jockey of the Week, selected by a panel of industry experts. Additional features include extensive jockey statistics (powered by Equibase.com), profiles, videos, a Hall of Fame section and a weekly quiz where visitors to the site can win great jockey memorabilia.
“We feel that a venture like this is long overdue,” said JockeyTalk360 President Corey Johnsen. “We see this as the first stop for racing fans who want to learn more about these men and women who make the sport possible.”
