Listen To The Experts: A Guide To Derby And Oaks

Wikimedia Commons

The Kentucky Derby will be run for the 142nd consecutive time this Saturday at Churchill Downs.

During an hour-long WFPL news special on Tuesday, we talked about who to watch in the Derby and Friday’s Kentucky Oaks. We also discussed the sport in general with our racing panel.

WFPL's Rick Howlett conducted the interview. He was joined by former jockeys Donna Barton Brothers, now a racing analyst for NBC Sports and Patricia "PJ" Cooksey, who’s now with the Kentucky Racing Commission; Jonathan Lintner, who covers racing for the Courier-Journal; and Ed DeRosa, handicapper and blogger for TwinSpires.com.
