Haskell week is going to be exciting for me. Monday I will have another article posted on HorseRacingNation.com: "The Haskell: Where Champions Prove Their Greatness". I will also be at Monmouth for the races on Monday. Thursday I will be live tweeting from the Haskell Post Position Draw and Press Conference. I will tweet the draw right as it happens and then comments from the trainers and owners.
So make sure you follow me at TWITTER @AndyScoggin for all of the fun.
I might squeeze in a visit to the backside for Haskell workouts, plus I'd really like to meet Bob Baffert!
Then Sunday I get to attend The Haskell as a member of the press!
