The following articles are based on research I have conducted over the last 20 plus years while I did independent research on animal locomotion, physiology, biomechancis, gait analysis, and many more. Some articles will be from the Derby List postings I have made since the early 1990's. I will also post other information I have collected over the years.

I was a race horse owner in 1982 to 1988 time frame along with being a managing general partner in a horse race limited partnership. I have been licensed horse owner in four states and a licensed vendor working for EQB, Inc.
