Greetings, and Welcome to my website!
I am Janice L. Blake, jockey, author, speaker, equine consultant, and handicapper, here to serve you and our lovely horses.
I am a jockey currently riding on the New York circuit of Aqueduct, Belmont, and Saratoga.
Since junior high, I have been creating short stories and journal entries. More recently, I have written a book about race horses, available here, and other works which I also intend to publish, such as an instructional, beginner’s horse book series, a children’s book, a television pilot, and a screenplay.
My philosophy is that we are all here to help each other.
Gain access to my opinion and tips on the races of the day, go to The Jockey’s Edge, my handicapping website: the only place where you can acquire the expert, inside handicapping opinion of a female jockey!
I love to teach people about horses.
I have written several books, most notably of which is How to Exercise a Thoroughbred Race Horse. This book tells the reader how to take a Thoroughbred race horse from the barn to the race track and back safely. A must read for rail birds of any experience. Filled with beautiful photographs by Barbara D. Livingston and a myriad of equine quotes from the ages.
