Which Subscription?

Fellow readers, TBA Bloggers and anyone who might read this and venture an opionion. I would appreciate in hearing comments on which magazine/website do you pay a subscription to that covers Thoroughbred Racing? I currently subscribe to the BloodHorse $99/yr print and $89/yr electronic, which I have enjoyed but I have also found myself reading the DRF online$99/yr and enjoyed the print edition at the track as well. Also, Thoroughbred Times $105/print pluse email newsletter, had been sending me the newsletter free for a couple of months that had a lot of great info. So, those are really the three front-runners but given limited time and not unlimied funds I really want to settle on one subscripion as my BloodHorse is up for renewal soon and I am just wondering what everyone else reads. Maybe there is something else out there that I don't even know about. Thanks for any comments.

In the past I had subscribed to both the Bloodhorse and Thoroughbred Times. Once the internet came along I didn't feel either was worth the subscription price. I read the online versions of DRF, Bloodhorse, TT and TSN; being a two dollar bettor I don't feel I am missing much. They say ignorance is bliss.

By the way Joe. Where is your post about the program at Churchill this Saturday.... I am waiting for some sound advice.

I subscribe to the bloodhorse, but I think I am going to let my subscription go. By the time I get the magazine, I have already read almost everything in the on-line version. The one feature I really like that is not on-line is the Merryland Diary by Josh Pons.

I say save your money for the track and read everything on line. If I miss an article, I will read someones blog and get all the info!

The good thing about subscribing to the Bloodhorse is that you get a free subscription to the Thoroughbred Daily News. So I think that's your best bet.
