As part of our continuing effort to provide a nice alternative for your reading pleasure, The Rutherford Reader has taken great pride in the works of our very own sports writer Danny Brewer. Having a penchant for the ponies, the Sports Brew has focused diligently on the underpublicized world of Thoroughbred horse racing with hopes of indoctrinating the everyday sports fan to its many wonderful qualities. His time and efforts are much appreciated as he has put himself and this publication on the national map and earned the right to become a voter in the National Thoroughbred Racing Association’s weekly poll.

“Danny Brewer of the Rutherford Reader has quickly become known within the Thoroughbred racing industry as one of the most passionate and energetic reporters covering the sport,” says Joan Lawrence, communications director for the NTRA. “His love and keen knowledge of horse racing are epitomized to us via his enthusiastic involvement on our weekly media teleconferences and his status as one of the fifty people nationwide who we have invited to vote in our weekly NTRA top thoroughbred polls. Rest assured, readers of the Rutherford Reader are getting top-quality coverage of Thoroughbred racing.”

Because Thoroughbred racing is a sport recognized from coast to coast, Brewer has made efforts to provide coverage of the happenings throughout this great land of ours. Much like the big matchups in college football, the intersectional battles are often some of the best so he has placed importance on the national scene and that has not gone unnoticed.

“Danny Brewer is all energy and all good,” says Mac McBride, director of media for the Del Mar thoroughbred Club, the group that runs the highly successful Del Mar race meeting in Southern California each summer. “He’s a sharp handicapper and a knowledgeable reporter too. I’ve seen him in action at our place and at the Breeders’ Cup and he brings a passion for the game with him. We need more turf writers like Danny.”

Inside this edition you will find a special section Danny has dedicated to the Kentucky Derby. Read, enjoy, and join us in supporting him and his coverage in our paper!
