Lexington, Ky. – Wednesday, August 5, 2015 - The Blood-Horse has unveiled Blood-Horse Daily, a free app that features Thoroughbred news and information delivered for smartphone Apple and Android platforms.
"The Blood-Horse has made its unique content available on both a daily and weekly basis over a long period of time and the creation of the Blood-Horse Daily app enables us to leverage the best technology available to a publisher and share that content as quickly and as widely as possible," said John K.
