Morning Report: Gargan, Donk talk stakes, plus Eric Cancel
Horse Racing Nation's Andrew Capone will be hitting the backside all summer to talk to connections at Saratoga.

In this report, he visits with jockey Eric Cancel, trainer Danny Gargan and trainer David Donk. 

Cancel discusses how he became a jockey, the early parts of his career and his top moments as a rider. 

Next up is Gargan, who has multiple stakes winner Dakota Gold entered in Wednesday's Cab Calloway Stakes for New York-breds. He is the 3-5 favorite in the one-mile turf race.

Gargan shares his thoughts on Dakota Gold's runner-up finish in the Rick Violette Stakes last out and what he expects from the 3-year-old Freud colt on Wednesday. 

Donk is set to take on Dakota Gold in the Cab Calloway with Barrel of Quests, who is 8-1 on the morning line. Hear why the trainer thinks his son of Mission Impazible has an upset chance on Wednesday.
