Episode Description

Our 1st guest Eclipse-Award winning writer and former jockey Eddie Donnally will discuss his new book "Ride The White Horse: A Checkered Jockey's Story of Racing, Rage and Redemption". Donnally rode for 19-years in over 10,000 races from coast to coast and his life was a roller coaster ride that included drug addiction, involvement with the notorious Whitey Bulger and the Winter Hill Gang, a miraculous jail cell conversion that led to his current position as a hospice chaplain. Our 2nd guest is Dan Kenny, a bloodstock agent and writer who has been covering the recent successful Fasig-Tipton Sale. Lexington-based Kenny will also handicap the Gr. 2 $200,000 Fayette Stakes at Keeneland. Also on the program will be Daily Racing Form writer John McDulin who will join John to handicap Belmont's Turnback The Alarm Stakes, the $200,000 Jean Lafitte from Delta Downs and the Gr. 3 $100,000 Autumn Miss Stakes at Santa Anita.
