NYRA, No Answers but Cool Videos

I’ve been keeping an eye on the NYRA Facebook page ever since I posted a question over there. No “continuous dialogue between racetrack executives and the racing public” just yet, but a quick twirl over to Raceday360 Wire uncovered yet a new foray for NYRA into “web 2.0″… YouTube!

What they published tonight was a series of videos of jockeys, billed as Video Jockey Cards. They feature several NY jocks answering a standard set of questions set to kind of funny music and definitely funny editing (John Hennegan, did you have anything to do with that editing?). I blew through a bag of popcorn and watched them all… totally enjoyable.

While I’m glad too see them creating fun content, I seriously hope they interact with their fans over at the Facebook group, I’m not the only who posted a question on their wall! Until then…
