Nick Hahn, Derby Bill Watson and Frank Vespe reconvene Saturday morning to talk turkey — literally — and racing in a new episode of Off to the Races.

By the time the crew catches up, Laurel Park will already have hosted two Friday stakes, with three more on the way Saturday, plus the Grade 1 Hollywood Derby and much more.

Among the questions the team will answer:

  • Did anyone stray from the Thanksgiving regulars for their Thursday meal?
  • What happened to Hello Beautiful in the Politely?
  • With no morning line favorite less than 3-1, how do you make sense of the three Laurel stakes?
  • And much more!

Post time is 10:00 a.m.!

The cast of characters:

  • Nick Hahn. A familiar voice to our listeners, Nick Hahn is the Virginia correspondent for The Racing Biz and author of the eponymous Nick’s Picks tipsheet, the original and best Colonial Downs tipsheet. And, yes, Nick had I’ll Have Another in the 2012 Kentucky Derby.
  • Derby Bill Watson. Man, myth, and legend Derby Bill Watson is an Off to the Races  regular and the former on-air handicapper for Colonial Downs. 

Frank Vespe will host.
