Todd Schrupp, TVG's TV Host, on Horse Racing
September 7, 2017
Hosted by Mike Abadir with Co-Host Gino Buccola
This week, we will be covering all of the hot topics relating to the summer’s horse racing action with TVG’s long-time TV Host, Todd Schrupp. From recapping the just-concluded meets at Del Mar and Saratoga, as well as looking ahead to the upcoming meets at Belmont, Keeneland, Los Alamitos, and Santa Anita, we’ll explore it all. All of those tracks will be hosting big-time races, so we’ll get Todd’s thoughts on the “win and you’re in” prospects who are pointing towards the Breeder’s Cup Championships. Aside from the horses, we will discuss what to expect for first time Breeder’s Cup host track, Del Mar. There are plenty of story lines to cover relating to the human connections – owners, trainers, and jockeys - as we progress towards the final stretch of the year. Who are the Eclipse Award front runners? If Todd were commissioner, how would he address track attendance? Exchange wagering? The wagering model and current takeout rate? This and much more with Todd Schrupp!
