Down the Stretch for May 31, 2021
That was a monster, gutsy win at Churchill by Queen’s Plate Champion, Mighty Heart and it’s just one of many victories in the U.S. by Canadian horsepeople.

Should Canadian horse racing have a lottery-type game attached? Comments on that from author Robin Dawson and Woodbine CEO Jim Lawson. Greg Thompson from Texas talks about his podcast, which covers only quarter horse racing.
