An AvgHorsePlayer Exclusive

Whether you are horse racing fan or not, I think the story of jockeys and the Jockey's Guild is one that crosses various industries and interests. It's a story of labor unions, workmen's compensation, respect, and the ability to earn a living plying a trade.

I just had an opportunity to sit down with the National Director of the Jockey's Guild, Dwight Manley. If you are not familiar with the Jockey's Guild, you can go HERE to check out their website.

The Guild has been through some extremely tumultuous times over the past twelve months and it was a pleasure to be able to sit down with the Guilds newly elected National Director. Here are two recent articles that talk about some of the issues facing the Guild.

Article #1
Article #2

If you are just visiting for the first time welcome. If you found this site via Metblogs, then a very special welcome and a huge THANK YOU for taking the time to visit.

Now, an interview with Dwight Manley:
