The Paulick Report is pleased to announce the appointment of author and historian Jennifer Kelly as its new weekend editor.
Kelly brings a wealth of writing experience to the role, having worked as a technical writer and college writing instructor before embarking on her first book titled ‘Sir Barton and the Making of the Triple Crown,’ published by University Press of Kentucky in 2019. She was inspired to write the book on Sir Barton when she wanted to learn more about the first American Triple Crown winner and realized how few resources there were in place to tell his story.
Kelly is currently working on a second book titled ‘Foxes of Belair: Gallant Fox, Omaha, and the Quest for the Triple Crown.’
“We are thrilled to have someone with Jennifer’s passion for racing in our weekend editor role,” said editor-in-chief Natalie Voss. “I’ve enjoyed her work for years and am happy to have her unique perspective on our team of contributors.”
Kelly has been a horse racing fan since watching her first Kentucky Derby in 1988 and has been a speaker at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, the Keeneland Library, and Kentucky Derby Museum.
Kelly has previously specialized in research and writing for academic and business settings. She holds bachelor’s degrees in English and French from the University of Montevallo and a master’s degree in English from The University of Alabama in Huntsville. From there, she shifted to teaching first-year composition and technical writing for over a decade at The University of Alabama in Huntsville.
“I am excited to join the team at Paulick Report,” said Kelly. “This is a team deep in talent and experience and I am grateful for the chance to be a part of a roster of turfwriters like this one.”
