Dear Readers,

There have been significant changes to the Handicapper's Edge and Bloodstock Journal newsletters. These changes are meant to produce more analytical content for our readers as well as handicappers who use the information in the newsletters.

Nearly everything has been migrated over to the TwinSpires.com Blog section on TwinSpires.com, including Dick Powell's Handicapping Insights and John Mucciolo's Notebooks. These features are still available, and for free like everything in the newsletters, but are just located in a different place now.

If you have any questions or comments on the new format, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for following the Edge and Journal.
