This show, recorded Saturday, May 11, goes in depth with thoughts from Romans, Churchill Downs' all-time winningest trainer. He didn't have a horse in the race, but Romans has a clear opinion on stewards' unanimous call.

Meet E. J. Clark

E. J., a 30-year broadcast radio veteran, has covered Thoroughbred racing for most of that time. After 22 years on the air as a DJ and program director, he joined his radio station’s sales staff at WTMT- AM in Louisville, Ky., and created what is now the city’s longest-running horse racing talk show, the Kentucky Winner’s Circle, in 1997.

Originally known as “The Road to Racing,” the show has aired on a number of local stations — it can now be heard regularly on Big X Sports Radio, 96.1 FM and 1450 AM, WXVW — with this podcast aimed at reaching a new audience of horse racing fans.

When racing’s in session at Kentucky’s major circuits, you can find Clark, microphone in hand, roaming the barn area, with those interviews and more coming to Horse Racing Nation during Triple Crown season.
