The road to the Breeders’ Cup continues with Saturday’s Pennsylvania Derby and Cotillion Stakes at Parx. Trainer Mike McCarthy discusses Axelrod’s climb to be a contender in the Penn Derby. Former jockey turned XpressBet expert Richard Migliore breaks down both races and also discusses his methods for grading his former peers as he handicaps the horses. The startling exit of Good Magic, Instagrand, Roadster and Poet’s Word this week from Breeders’ Cup consideration is also discussed as is the split of the Pegasus World Cup purse into two big-money races next winter at Gulfstream Park. The racing flashback remembers the last time we saw Spectacular Bid race – sort of. The Ron Flatter Racing Pod is available at Apple Podcasts, Google Play Podcasts and Stitcher. The RFRP and coverage of the road to the Breeders’ Cup are sponsored by XpressBet.
