About Terry Conway
For the past fifteen years I’ve been a contributing writer to a variety of national & regional magazines. Currently my work appears in Blood- Horse magazine, Long Island Boating World magazine, The Hunt Magazine and Pennsylvania Equestrian as well as daily newspapers including the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Delaware County Times. I am a regular contributor to JustSayGo and GallaghersTravels and SeeTheSouth -- topflight travel websites - and have contributed travel articles to IFWTWA.com -- the International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association website.
While many of my articles have spotlighted the world of art and special travel destinations, many folks ask, why horse racing? Well, it was America’s first sport. Andrew Jackson kept a stable when he was in the White House (1829-1837). Only four sportswriters have won the Pulitzer Prize and all of them wrote at one time or another about horseracing. It is all about chasing dreams, the fiercest rivalries, the wildest flukes and larger-than-life personalities, equine and human. The stories are personal, often laced with humor. And, unlike most professional athletes when you show up, the horse’s connections are pleased to talk with you.
I have been a regular contributor to The Blood-Horse magazine since 2003 and I am a racing correspondent to ESPN.com, where I focus on historical racing stories as I do for America’s Best Racing, the website of the Jockey Club and National Thoroughbred Racing Association. My work has also appeared on these prominent racing websites: PaulickReport.com and Equidaily.com. I cover racing for the award-winning Pennsylvania Equestrian publication, wrote a Sunday column on racing for several years for the Chester County (Pa.) daily newspaper and cover racing and the horse world for The Hunt magazine in the mid-Atlantic region.
I represented clients for nearly a decade in the areas of marketing and publicity such as the Kahunaville restaurant chain, Baldwin’s Book Barn and Thoroughbred Charities of America. In a former life I was the editor, publisher and owner of Life Sports Magazine.
My wife Jane, our toller retriever Smarty and I live in the historic neighborhood of Wawaset Park in Wilmington, Del. A century ago it was the state fairgrounds, home to a top-tier standardbred racetrack. Today, the grand old track can be visualized on a stroll along a pair of crescent-shaped roads that together circle the inside of the park. A couple of hitching posts still remain and occasionally, a time-worn horse shoe is dug up. Life sure does turn circles.
