QH Racing Talk Podcast: Episode 32 - Author Joe Merrick (AUDIO)

DALLAS, TX—MAY 12, 2023—StallioneSearch continues the 2023 podcast season with the debut of episode 32 of the QH Racing Talk Podcast today, featuring a discussion with first-time author Joe Merrick about his upcoming book surrounding Easy Jet's remarkable two-year old campaign in 1969 where he was named world champion.

As the son of AQHA Hall of Fame member Walter Merrick, Joe Merrick was a 12-year-old boy during the legendary run of his father's trainee in 1969 and has taken to writing the upcoming book that will give the account of those events in 1969 from the perspective of the pre-teenage adolescent.

Merrick is in the finishing stages of authoring the book, however release date has not been set.

The AQHA Hall of Fame runner and sire Easy Jet's epic two-year old campaign saw the son of Jet Deck score 22-victories from a lofty 26-starts as a two year-old.

During that run in 1969, Easy Jet qualified for and claimed victories in the Blue Ribbon Futurity, Columbus Triple Crown Futurity, Lubbock Downs, Futurity, Laddie Stakes at Centennial Park, Rocky Mountain QHA Futurity, All American Congress Futurity, Sunland Park Fall Futurity, Kansas Futurity, and the All American Futurity at Ruidoso Downs.
