Host Derek Simon of US Racing recaps last weekend’s Rachel Alexandra (won by 74-1 longshot Venus Valentine) and Risen Star Stakes (taken by Gun Runner), along with Thursday’s Trans Gulf Electromechanical Trophy Handicap (captured by California Chrome). He also discusses the dubious debut of Ziconic, a son of former Horse of the Year Zenyatta.
Later in the Program the “Thoroughbred Racing Dudes” — Jared Welch and Aaron Halterman — drop by to talk even more racing and the red-hot Kevin Rogers of VegasInsider is back to discuss the NBA and college basketball.
