Unfiltered: Kentucky Derby Takeaways and Preakness Possibilities

May 10, 2022

Thank you for watching another of Unfiltered on Past the Wire TV. You have tuned in to the best horse racing show and channel out there!

On this episode of Unfiltered we take a look at the improbable result of the Kentucky Derby and the win by Rich Strike. If you were shocked you were not alone. Courtesy of Hang we bring you rider Chantal Sutherland’s reaction (Courtesy of Hang) to the race and win from the Gulfstream Park Jockey’s room. After Chantal we get into the nuts and bolts.

Our hosts Michael Wilson and Jonathan Stettin break down the race, trips, riding, and even the outrider incident following the race from their two unique perspectives. Michael as a former trainer and student of the game and Jon as a bettor and also student of the game. How improbable was Rich Strike’s win? Who ran good, who disappointed and who do you like coming out of the race? What if you are Joe Sharp who lost Rich Strike via $30,000 claim? They even talk Alydar and the original Red and Blue Calumet Farm, and the new Rich Strike and Black and Gold Calumet Farm. Did Sonny Leon or Irad Ortiz ride the better race in The Kentucky Derby? We are Unfiltered!

With the Kentucky Derby in the record books we move on to the Preakness. What does a trainer need to do with a horse coming out of the Derby? What do you do with a “new shooter” as they are called. Which is more advantageous, to have run in the Derby or not? Is the Pimlico speed track bias a myth? Who may go, and who may stay home? Is it better to have a workout before the Preakness if you ran in the Derby or is cruise control a better option and signal to players? Michael and Jon talk it through, all Unfiltered! Last but never least, they weigh in on the NBC coverage and why Fox may be in the catbird seat for The Belmont Stakes!

Again thank you for tuning in and watching! We hope you enjoy the show!
