C.C. Chapman shares his three words for 2014: Sharpen, Outside and Victories

The weather gets gray, the demands slow down and I can really spend more time just wandering and wondering.

This yearly gathering of the eternally curious is easily one of my favorite conferences. I always leave with tons of brain nibbles that keep me thinking long after I’ve returned home.
Up front, I need to thank the team for flying me down and taking care of me while there. All they ask in return is that I share my thoughts with those who will listen and I’m happy to do so.
Sadly, I had to miss the first day of the festival which focuses on theRead Full Post

C.C. Chapman shares his experience at The 2013 Hambletonian
Before arriving in New Jersey yesterday, I knew almost nothing about the sport and history of harness racing. Until I was invited to cover The Hambletonian I knew very little.
Turns out that it is a pretty big deal in many parts of the globe. Both Sweden and France love it. There are even equestrian tours that go around the globe to visit farms, tracks and races.
The first thing I noticed when I got to The Meadowlands Racetrack is the old school vibe of the place. You know that it has been here for years and has seen tens of thousandsRead Full Post
