The Ron Flatter Racing Pod: Mike Smith and Winx and the Pacific Classic

Ron Flatter

August 16, 2018 10:40 PM

The Pacific Classic, a trip to Saratoga and the return of the world’s number-one racehorse are the focus of The Ron Flatter Racing Pod. Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith talks about his ride on Midnight Bisou on Saturday in the Alabama Stakes, Saratoga’s summertime feature for 3-year-old fillies, and he discusses the past with Justify, the future with Roadster and the present with the Pacific Classic on Saturday at Del Mar. Editor-in-chief Shane Anderson of the Australian multimedia platform talks about the return of top-ranked Winx to the racetrack Friday night, whether she is truly the best horse in the world and a range of comparisons between U.S. and Australia racing cultures. The weekly flashback remembers the closing of Bay Meadows, and Ron breaks down the eight-horse field for the Pacific Classic in addition to some personal thoughts about living in Australia and experiencing racing there.
