“It’s a loaded show. First, PTF and JK talk about racing from last weekend, including Derby preps at Aqueduct, Florida and Santa Anita. Then, Pat Cummings of the Thoroughbred Idea Foundation comes by to talk about what racing’s response should be to recent changes in the gaming landscape (HINT: It’s not merely to ask for a slice of the pie). Finally, in a long-awaited visit, we’ve got Steve Byk here to talk about this year’s National Horseplayers Championship and the coverage he’ll be providing (with a small assist from PTF). Make sure you stick around after the credits for an outtake.”
Some other things to check out this week:
Here’s my article about Preston Simms for The Stronach Group.
And here’s my recap of last weekend’s TC prep action for the other At the Races.
The TIF white paper Pat Cummings discusses on the new show lives here.
Teresa Genaro wrote a piece for Forbes I wish I had written about Karen Carey.
Interesting thread from Ed ReDosa with some stats about NHC cap horses.
And now on with the show:
Look for me from me this week, including a written review of the TC preps for attheraces.com and a piece for NYRA about their NHC qualifiers.
Plus, a special NHC pregame show podcast. I’ll tweet links and edit this post so they live here as well.
May you win all photos!
