Down The Stretch Podcast Episode 69 Description
The unpleasant case of Medina Spirit, Bob Baffert, and the positive test get full coverage this week. We have feedback from Jim Lawson, Lori Cirillo, Jennifer Morrison, Garnet Barnsdale, Robin Dawson Ric Chapman in Australia, Gary ‘Suitcase’ Smith in California, Boomer Esiason, and even Saturday Night Live. Oklahoma City lawyer William Federman lays out the Class Action suit against Baffert. And then, how did Medina Spirit do in the Preakness Stakes? It was another week in which Canadian drivers marched onto American tracks and took down their purses. We have race calls of wins by Scott Zeron, Doug McNair, Louis-Philippe Roy, Bob McClure, Trevor Henry, and Mark MacDonald. We find out from Irwin Driedger how much a jockey is worth in this province, Bob Broadstock updates the status of the Quarter Racing industry, and Josie Carroll’s Belichick raced tough at Churchill Downs. Chantal Sutherland brought in another good-priced horse, and how come a horse named Hohohoho didn’t get the last laugh?
