Flatter Pod: Is it Lecomte, LeComte, Lecompte or LeCount?

Flatter Pod: Is it Lecomte, LeComte, Lecompte or LeCount?

A look ahead to this weekend’s Kentucky Derby 2023 prep and this year’s plans for the 2022 Derby winner are the focus of the Ron Flatter Racing Pod.

Eclipse Award-winning horseplayer Michael Beychok checks in from Louisiana to discuss the Grade 3 Lecomte Stakes, a better-than-advertised allowance race and recent trends at Fair Grounds. He also talks about Derby futures betting and even his day job as a political consultant in Baton Rouge.

Trainer Eric Reed outlines 2023 plans for 80-1 Derby winner Rich Strike, who returned from the farm to resume training this month.

Charting Horse Value creator Jeff Bessa has handicapping advice that zeroes in on the late, all-stakes Pick 4 on Saturday at Fair Grounds with emphasis on the Lecomte, the Silverbulletday and the Louisiana.

There also is listener feedback.

The Ron Flatter Racing Pod via Horse Racing Nation is available via free subscription from Apple, Google, Spotify and Stitcher as well as HorseRacingNation.com.
