On this week's "Horse Racing Talk," Emery Songer and John Hernandez break down the latest on the phasing out of race-day medication Lasix over the next few years at the biggest tracks in the country. They also go over last week's Arkansas Derby result and line up who they think are the top Kentucky Derby contenders.
Along that front, Laffit Pincay III from NBC Sports joins the show to give his input of the top dozen horses and what will need to happen for each of them to feel comfortable in a crowded field.
Two-time Triple Crown winning trainer Bob Baffert calls in as well to talk about his three top contenders: Roadster, Game Winner, and Improbable. He also outlines his discussions with jockey Mike Smith, who has decided to ride Richard Mandella's Omaha Beach after winning the Triple Crown on Baffert's Justify last year.
