American Quarter Horse racing fans are looking forward to full-throttle racing, as many of the best horses in the industry prepare to run in the coming weeks. Tracks around the country are hosting major events, including the Texas Classic Futurity (G1), Golden State Million Futurity (G1), Los Alamitos Super Derby (G1), LQHBA Futurity (RG1), Bank of America Challenge Championships and other events, all approaching quickly.

The big races will be covered extensively by the American Quarter Horse Association’s Q-Racing Journal and the Association’s Horse Racing Aces through extended live coverage and social media.

The coverage begins on Sunday, October 20, and will extend through Saturday, November 9. It will begin with live coverage from Turf Paradise, where Ace Martha Claussen will be onsite for the final Bank of America Challenge regional qualifying event. Claussen, as well as Aces Denis Blake, Jennifer Hancock and Jen Perkins, will post daily updates on social media sites Facebook and Twitter, offering coast-to-coast racing news, updates and handicapping insights from Los Alamitos, Zia Park, Evangeline Downs, Turf Paradise, Lone Star Park and Will Rogers Downs.

The Q-Racing Journal’s extensive coverage of the Bank of America Challenge Championships will reach high gear in early November, with daily updates, photos and coverage in the week prior to the November 9 event at Los Alamitos.

"We feel that social media is an excellent way to communicate up-to-the-minute racing news to our members, fans and horsemen," said AQHA Executive Director of Racing Trey Buck. “The Aces follow race meets across the country and can impart valuable racing and handicapping information to fans. We are working with our partner tracks and industry alliances to create awareness of the current and upcoming live meets and attract more followers to our industry.”

The Horse Racing Aces program was developed in 2010 with an experienced group of American Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred handicappers, racing writers and publicists.
