Award-winning journalist Joe Nevills has been named bloodstock editor of the Paulick Report. Nevills, who has covered Thoroughbred breeding and sales since 2011 for the Daily Racing Form and Thoroughbred Times, will direct all of the publication's bloodstock coverage and serve as a liaison between the Paulick Report's advertising department and bloodstock businesses to assist in marketing their stallions and auction consignments.
“I am stoked to have someone with Joe's knowledge, enthusiasm and insights join our team,” said Ray Paulick, who co-founded the Paulick Report with Brad Cummings in June 2008. “Thoroughbred breeding and sales represent a multi-billion-dollar industry, and Joe can not only substantially upgrade our editorial coverage in this new position but also work directly with bloodstock advertisers to help them achieve a strong return on their advertising investment with us. He speaks their language and will be a great asset to our director of advertising, Emily Alberti.”
“The bloodstock realm is full of interesting stories, and I look forward to working together with the community to share them,” Nevills said. “I also hope to use my connections within the industry to help grow the brands of its participants and of the Paulick Report itself.”
Nevills, a 2009 graduate of Central Michigan University with a degree in journalism, first came to Lexington, Ky., in 2008 to work as an intern with Thoroughbred Times. He returned to the Thoroughbred Times to work full time as a staff writer in August 2011 until the company ceased publication in September 2012. He then joined Daily Racing Form where he served as lead breeding and auction writer for 5 1/2 years. His byline has appeared in Thoroughbred Daily News, Bloodhorse and numerous other publications.
Recognized with an honorable mention in 2013 Eclipse Awards writing competition, Nevills has twice been a finalist for outstanding writing in Canada's Sovereign Awards. His article on handicapping through pedigrees won Nevills the Ron Rippey Award for Handicapping Media from Brisnet.com in 2016, and a retrospective on the Edward P. Evans Dispersal was runner-up in American Horse Publications Awards for feature writing.
Nevills is married to Paulick Report features editor Natalie Voss and lives in Georgetown, Ky.
