Ed Musselman, the former Churchill Downs tour guide, groom, jockey agent and trainer who publishes the Indian Charlie newsletter that is distributed during some race meetings and Thoroughbred auctions throughout the United States, has proven to be an avid reader of the Paulick Report, which England's Pacemaker magazine said in its September issue “has become required reading for everyone with an involvement in the U.S. Thoroughbred industry.”


Musselman, in fact, seems almost obsessed with the Paulick Report, based on the number of recent references he's made in his newsletter, which stands true to its motto: “We never let the truth get in the way of a good story.” The most recent reference to the Paulick Report can be found in today's Indian Charlie, in which Musselman comments on the Paulick Report's recent two-part series about Keeneland's very profitable history (Lexington's Fort Knox) and current governance and ownership (Who Owns Keeneland?).

Since the June 16 launch of the Paulick Report, Musselman has shown a potential “man crush,” writing six fictional stories about the Paulick Report and its editor and publisher, Ray Paulick. References to the Paulick Report since June 16 can be found here, here, here, here, here and here.

That number puts the Paulick Report in good company with such regular Indian Charlie cast members as Jerry Bailey, Bob Baffert, Cot Campbell, Robert Clay, Christophe Clement, Terrence Collier, Bob Evans, Terry Finley, Arthur Hancock, Barry Irwin, Ken McPeek, Niall O'Callaghan, and Dallas Stewart.

“We would like to sincerely thank Mr. Musselman and his billionaire Jockey Club member ghostwriters for the free publicity,” Ray Paulick told the Paulick Report in an exclusive interview, “and we encourage all of them to keep up the good work. Of course, we hope his ghostwriters are able to continue doing such a terrific job running the Thoroughbred industry.”
