On a weekend that includes Gulfstream Park’s opening, the Hollywood Derby and Pavel racing in Japan, it is the Cigar Mile card and Kentucky Derby futures that have the focus of the Ron Flatter Racing Pod. David Grening of The Daily Racing Form provides a preview from Aqueduct not only of the Cigar Mile but also of the Remsen, the Go For Wand and the Demoiselle stakes. Duane Colucci, assistant manager of the race and sports books at the Rampart Casino, Las Vegas, provides his thoughts about the right and wrong ways to bet Derby futures coming out of the first weekend of nationwide pari-mutuel wagering. Racehorses by the Letters singles out the best horse beginning with “D.” Ron has a comment for those who are too cynical about Bob Baffert’s success with first-time starters. And no adjustment of your earbuds is necessary; the podcast has new music this week. The Ron Flatter Racing Pod is available at Apple, Google Play, Stitcher and VSiN.com/podcasts.
