The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Edited Press Release — BloodHorse will accept applications through April 17 for a new paid internship position to work on the leading industry publication’s various platforms this summer.

The accepted intern will work with the BloodHorse editorial department on its monthly magazine, popular website, BloodHorse Daily newsletter, and BH+ website, which features news videos as well as leading industry analysis through MarketWatch and breeding information. The paid internship is being funded by BloodHorse and the National Turf Writers and Broadcasters (NTWAB).

“We’re looking forward to launching, with support of the NTWAB, this opportunity for a journalist interested in covering the racing industry,” said BloodHorse Editorial Director Frank Angst, who also is an NTWAB board member. “At BloodHorse, we have a number of platforms to tell stories and any number of topics to cover, from racing, to industry news, to sales, to breeding.”

The BloodHorse internship is targeted toward those with an interest in pursuing a journalism career in horse racing. The Lexington, Ky.-based internship will run over eight weeks this summer with specific start dates to be mutually agreed upon. As the intern finds the subject matter and platforms that most interest them, they will have opportunities to spend additional time in those areas.

The internship is open to students currently enrolled in a college or university or who have graduated within one academic year of the start of the internship.

This is one of two paid internships that the NTWAB is helping to support.

“The NTWAB is excited to provide funding for internships geared toward racing coverage,” said NTWAB board member and head of the organization’s scholarship/internship committee Natalie Voss. “Our organization has been involved with similar programs in the past, typically helping provide funds for scholarships or facilitating scholarships with other entities. What sets this program apart is the direct funding provided to news outlets to boost their existing or new programs, which we hope will one day produce the same professional journalists that make up our membership roster.”

The BloodHorse internship is in addition to The Jockey Club internship program, which accommodates up to three interns who gain exposure to all companies and departments within the organization, including BloodHorse. The Jockey Club interns for 2023 will be announced in April.
