This podcast, the 10th of Down The Stretch, was produced completely on an I-phone with the least possible human interaction. You will enjoy the interview with COSA’s Bill O’Donnell and the three-parter with veteran jockey Gary Boulanger who talks about winning the Queen’s Plate, almost dying after a horrible spill and how he came back in his late 40s and early 50s to show he’s still one of the best. Woodbine CEO Jim Lawson (thanks to COSA TV) explains the excruciating decision that WEG had to make, suspending harness racing at Mohawk and we even threw in a wonderful ride by Chantal Sutherland, who won a Stakes race at the Fair Grounds.
The world may be cooped up and isolated, but please tell everyone you know that this podcast is still happening!
