Marion Altieri is lifelong lover of horses and fan of horse racing. Writer, editor, pundit, publisher, radio show hostinista and alpha-mare-about-town. Her website, https://www.fillyracing.com will bring together URLs for this blog with her radio, TV and online magazine publishing endeavors--and be the first launch 'site for the new organization, Association of Women in Horse Racing Media. Both fillyracing.com and Women in Horse Racing Media seek to serve as guardians of equine welfare and rights, and strive to create new ways to make the sport both more nurturing for horses and more egalitarian for females. First a wordsmith, Marion is acutely aware of the power of language: as we speak and write, so we live. If language has the power to start and end wars, so too it has the power to save the lives of horses. A f!lly is not a little grrrl horse: a f!lly is a Force of Nature, and through her work--and working with other driven womyn and very-cool men-- Marion hopes to help reinforce this powerful Truth.
