As a pedigree consultant, I assist clients with breeding reports for their mares, sales catalog analysis and recommendations on claims and private sales. I
work closely with small to mid-level owners and trainers to find horses and bloodlines to suit their goals. Please visit the Pedigree Services page for more
In 2010,I joined Horse Racing Nation, the third largest horse racing website, as their Pedigree Analyst/Racing Corespondent. On my Pedigree Power Blog at
Horse Racing Nation,I provide pedigree profiles of two and three year old stakes winners on the Triple Crown trail from a handicapper's perspective.
Additionaly, I review first crop sires and how to bet their offspring.
Also in 2010, the Iron Maidens Thoroughbreds Blog was inducted into the Thoroughbred Blogger's Alliance.
My work has been featured on Derek Simon's Twinspires Blog, Today's Racing Digest, ThoroFan, Tracksideview, and the UK site Horse4Course-Racetips.
Minethatbird.com featured my 2009 profile of Mine That Bird and Kentucky Derby race analysis which included Mine That Bird as my longshot selection. The
Paulick Report's "Best of the Blogs." and Sid Fernando's twitter feed of "best blogs" mention my work frequently.
In 2011,I accepted the role of South Florida Coordinator and Advisory Board Member for the national non-profit Thoroughbred Racing Fan Association
(ThoroFan). Working closely with Gulfstream Park management and other race fans, we created a ThoroFan Chapter at Gulfstream Race Track. Our main
project is assisting Thoroughbred rescue and re-training groups.
I donate up to twenty percent of my yearly profits to thoroughbred rescue and re-training organizations.

About Iron Maidens Thoroughbreds
I've been around horses for most of my life, working in racing stables as a hot walker and exercise rider in my teenage years,
and later as a volunteer with rescued and retired racehorses.I became interested in pedigree research when the sons and
daughters of my favorite horses started their racing careers.
Forthe last twenty years, I have committed her passion for horses to the intensive study of pedigree and breeding theory.I
authored the "2009 Guide to Freshmen Sires," an e-book detailing each sire's conformation, breeding, past performances,
surface preferences and precocity, with an analysis of expectations for their progeny. The Guide has been acclaimed
internationally, and has developed into a yearly tool for breeders, owners and handicappers.
On my website and blog, I provide pedigree handicapping informaion, plus detailed race analysis focusing on juvenile races
through the Triple Crown. I also offer complimentary handicapping seminars in the Chat room where handicappers can gather
in an informal setting to discuss graded stakes races.
ThoroFan, America's best
racing fan organization has a
South Florida Chapter!
