Flatter Pod: Let’s get on the trail for Kentucky Derby 2023

The end of summer and the start of fall are in the spotlight on the Ron Flatter Racing Pod.

Churchill Downs TV analyst Kaitlin Free talks about the opening of the September meet in Kentucky and Saturday’s Iroquois (G3) and Pocahontas (G3), the first points preps for Kentucky Derby 2023 and the Kentucky Oaks (G1).

Del Mar president and COO Josh Rubinstein discusses why his track’s summer meet was successful, how the momentum may carry on all year in his state and the potential impact on racing from this fall’s vote that could legalize sports betting in California.

David Levitch handicaps the Iroquois and Pocahontas plus the Jockey Club Derby (G3) and Oaks (G3) at Belmont at Aqueduct, a.k.a. BAQ.

Listener feedback is highlighted by reaction to Flightline, his runaway victory in the Pacific Classic (G1) and the debate over whether he or Baaeed is the best racehorse in the world.
