From Santa Anita, next week’s Breeders’ Cup is the focus of the first episode of the third season of the Ron Flatter Racing Pod. Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella talks about why he put Omaha Beach in the Dirt Mile and discusses United’s bid to upset the field in the Turf. TV racing host Peter Lurie talks the championships and a career that has taken him from voicing cartoon characters to working trackside at Santa Anita. There is also a snapshot of the Breeders’ Cup pre-entries – and a preview of big races this weekend in Australia and Japan. The Ron Flatter Racing Pod is available via Apple, Google, Spotify, Stitcher and at VSiN.com/podcasts and is sponsored by Xpressbet.
