Whether you're researching for business or pleasure, or just want to stay abreast of the latest trends, horse racing publications can enhance your knowledge and keep you informed. There are many publications, including magazines, books, journals and newsletters, that cover horse racing. Unless you have the resources to subscribe and read them all, you really need to pick and choose the ones that meet your needs.
Magazines on horse racing offer a variety of resources, and there's a huge selection to choose from, but many are costly. The trick is to get the most information from the fewest resources, thus saving you money and keeping you informed so you don't have to read all day. When deciding which horse racing journal to choose, remember the following:
1. Some horse racing industry magazines offer free trial subscriptions so you can better determine whether the publication is for you.
2. When subscribing for publications, check the small print. Some publications require official cancellations of trial subscriptions or they will automatically start charging.
3. If possible, subscribe through a publication's website, rather than a magazine subscription site. You may receive additional tools and resources with your subscription.
