    I much prefer (and subscribe to!) Thoroughbred Times. The quality of the BH has really gone downhill the last couple of years.

    Both publications have their strengths. What are your primary interests? Industry news? Handicapping? Breeding? Racing in the US or worldwide? Sales?

    Not mentioned in the OP, but online subscriptions to Thoroughbred Daily News are free.

    I like both of them so I think you probably can't go wrong either way. TB Times does tend to give a more balanced view of the industry while the BloodHorse is more likely to whitewash some stuff. Unfortunately for BH, they've made some big cuts in staff in the last year and it really shows in the size of the magazine and the number of articles. Still they generally do a very good job with their racing, breeding, and sales coverage and if I could only read one or the other, I'd probably stick with BH.
