Starting in late March, the show will air simultaneously on ESPN Harrisonburg (106.9 FM and 1360 AM). And during the summer race meet at Colonial Downs, the program will expand to two hours.

Gargan will send out Dornoch, the 2-1 morning line favorite in Saturday’s Grade 2 Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park.
