Featuring handicapping tips and insight from insiders, the Ron Flatter Racing Pod is posted every Friday morning via VSiN.com. Check out the interviews with owners, trainers, jockeys, racing journalists, handicappers and celebrities. The pod is hosted by VSiN host/reporter Ron Flatter, who has been covering horse racing around the world for more than 30 years.
The best turf meeting this side of the Breeders’ Cup happens Saturday at Arlington Park near Chicago, and this week’s Ron Flatter Racing Pod originates from the site of the Arlington Million. Brian Lynch, trainer of Million favorite Oscar Performance, discusses the race and also his horse Heart To Heart, one of the top contenders in the Fourstardave Handicap on Saturday at Saratoga. Alastair "Duck" Donald, managing director of the U.K.-based International Racing Bureau, handicaps the Million, the Beverly D. and the Secretariat stakes. The Racing Flashback recalls John Henry’s photo-finish victory in the very first Arlington Million. And believe it or not, Ron has a commentary on a great debate in yacht rock.
