One week after gaining print exposure with a commentary in Thoroughbred Times, Patrick Patten, who pens the Handride blog, has called it quits, maybe.

[The TBA features more than 140 racing blogs.] He has also developed a relationship with the NTRA, for which he engineered Breeders’ Cup blogging gigs for himself and several other TBA bloggers, including Gina Rarick (see post below).
