Interview with Scott Shapiro, who handicaps the 4 Stakes at Churchill Downs on Saturday & a couple of NFL games!

We had a pretty good trip. We were outside, way out, but we saved ground (coming down) on the rail all the way. When we came to the three-eighths (pole), I thought we had a big chance to win the race. (When we) came to the straight, she was fine, fighting pretty good. Then when I saw the winner (Blue Prize) come out, I thought we had it. But I was in a great spot and she tried to really give me everything she had.”
