Horse Racing Nation is thrilled to syndicate "Horse Racing Talk," hosted by Iowa-based KXnO's Emery Songer and John Hernandez. Look for a new edition here each week!

On this week's show, there's all you need to know about the 2020 Kentucky Derby trail, from a reflection on last weekend's Sam F. Davis Stakes (G3) to a look ahead to Saturday's Risen Star Stakes (G2).

But the hosts also touch on racing's turbulent calendar year -- everything from racing's safety issues to the more current legal situation surrounding Triple Crown-winning owner Ahmed Zayat.

Also listen in for insight from handicappers Ken Miller and Chuck Reed, who evaluate the Risen Star and Rachel Alexandra Stakes (G2) on Saturday at Fair Grounds.
