We go back to the two-year-old ranks for Episode 174 of Chicago Race of the Day. Sunday’s Hawthorne 5th is a maiden special weight sprint for juveniles, going six furlongs on the dirt. With eight experienced runners and four first-time starters, there’s a lot to think about…so join me, and let’s ask the right questions!
(And, for those who need more ’90s rock in their lives? One of the horses in the race, Wheels, shares his name with a gem by Cool for August. This may not be a music podcast, but I cannot in good conscience talk about a horse named Wheels without sharing this song.)
