The Kenny Rice Horse Racing Show
Tkr horse 20racing 20show 20podcast 20logo

Each week we’ll talk about what’s happening in the sport, and along the way show that it isn’t as simple as who won or lost a race. This isn’t a handicapping show though we will discuss big races coming up.

But this will focus on people behind the scenes who play a complicated at times and always important role, from veterinarians to breeders, consignors to buyers as well as owners, jockeys and trainers.

It’s more than who wins but how they got to there.
