 Seen on the Prairie Meadows simulcast feed throughout the Iowa Festival of Racing, the hosts discuss the Iowa Derby, plus look back at closing weekend at BelmontPark.

 They're joined by Jeff Munson, who shares his story of working his way back to track announcing. Munson has been out of the game for 15 years and will be calling the races this summer at Fair Meadows Tulsa.

 NBC Sports' Donna Brothers discusses her career in horse racing as a jockey and a broadcaster. She also explained a chaotic Kentucky Derby from her point of view -- don't miss her written thoughts on that, too -- and talked about her efforts to help with the aftercare of retired thoroughbreds.
