This week’s show featured a bevy of great guests:
- Trainer Tim Keefe was on to discuss his talented three-year-old Still Having Fun, who won the Miracle Wood Stakes at Laurel Park last out, will likely run in the Private Terms next out, and if all goes to plan, might show up in a certain race run at 1 3/16 miles at Pimlico on the third Saturday in May.
- Alan Foreman, chairman of the Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, visited with us to discuss the rebirth of the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred Championships (MATCH) series of races, which in 2018 will be run for the first time in 16 years — a great example, Foreman said, of the growing cooperation in the industry.
- Willie White, president of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association, talked about the exciting journey he’s been on with Just Howard, the horse he owns who recently was named Maryland-bred Horse of the Year, Champion Turf Horse, and Champion Three-Year-old of 2017.
Plus, Derby Bill Watson and Nick Hahn shared their opinions on this afternoon’s running of the Grade 3 Hal’s Hope at Gulfstream Park, featuring the return of Irish War Cry, as well as their thoughts on which of the finalists should make the National Racing Hall of Fame. Check it out:
