Jenny Kellner recently retired after a career covering horse racing and other sports for a variety of publications, including the New York Times, the Associated Press, the New York Daily News and the New York Post. As well, her work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, the Los Angeles Times, the Louisville Courier-Journal, Newsday, the Blood-Horse and the Thoroughbred Times. She also served as the assistant director of communications for the New York Racing Association, which operates Belmont Park, Aqueduct Racetrack and Saratoga Race Course.
She was lucky enough to have witnessed first-hand (from the winners’ circle!) the crowning of three Triple Crown champions – Seattle Slew (1977), Affirmed (1978) and most recently, American Pharoah (2015).
Her lifelong dream of having her own horse finally came to fruition when she moved to Grand Junction in the fall of 2016 with her husband, Richard Rosenblatt, former horse racing writer for the Associated Press.
