Post Parade In this issue Well, I hope you guys are happy. I got so many Youth Beats subscription forms since the last issue that I had to go get a special basket just so I'd have a place to put them all ;) Seriously though, it's been great. If you would like to continue to receive Youth Beats—even if you have already subscribed previously—please fill out the subscription form on the back of this magazine or give us a call. We're off to a great start, so keep it going! It's also that time of year—in most parts of the country—when it's getting colder and cloudier outside. Weather like this can make you want to hunker down indoors until it warms up, but horsemen have a job to do! They race in all kinds of weather and almost never, ever cancel races. Find out how they do it on page 2. I also talked with driver Marcus Miller, a rising star in our sport who's having another great season. He comes from a long line of successful horsemen, but is making a name for himself in this country and all over the world. Enjoy the holidays and we'll see you again next year!
