Pete Aiello joins the Past the Wire clan to talk this year’s Florida Derby
Gulfstream Park track announcer Pete Aiello was kind enough on busy Florida Derby week to join the Past the Wire clan on their podcast Gate to Wire brought to you by Spendthrift Farm.
Sure they talked the Florida Derby and who Pete, Jon, and Michael vale all liked and disliked. Things got fun however when Pete handicapped the Pick 6 King himself pegging Jon’s single in the mandatory rainbow pick 6 payout. If that wasn’t bad enough, Jon is planning on singling a horse who was beat more than 20 lengths in her last start and that is not something you see every day.
Pete has a pretty good speed play opinion on the big race which closes out the mandatory payout rainbow 6. Jon has his single in the sequence and a horse he has been following into the Florida Derby. Vale comes in with his thoughts on the race also.
It is impossible not to have a great show with Pete at the table. In addition to the Pete handicapping the Pick 6 King himself the two also reminisce about the one ride the great Frankie Dettori would probably like to have back. Jon also shares some comments from jockey Jose Ortiz about Florida Derby favorite Greatest Honour’s last trip in the Fountain of Youth.
Sit back and enjoy the show:
