Surfer Girl, a Thoroughbred broodmare owned by sports radio host Jim Rome

LEXINGTON, KY (April 26, 2011) – Earlier last week, I took the opportunity to visit Surfer Girl, a broodmare owned by sports talk radio host Jim Rome. I first heard about the big mare when Rome tweeted about her (@JimRome) and trying to get her bred to Bernardini (she was turned down by the folks at Darley, but Pulpit was happy to oblige). My editor at HorsePlayer Magazine was also quite keen on the idea of talking to Rome about his involvement in racing, and here’s the result of that interview: Louisville Is Burning: An Exclusive HorsePlayer Magazine Interview with Jim Rome.
