Horse Racing in Southern California

Hosted by

California Chrome runs in the Belmont Stakes this Saturday. He’s favored to become the 12th horse in history - and the first since 1978 - to hold horse racing’s Triple Crown. Matt Holzman has the story of what California Chrome means to Los Alamitos Race Course, the little track where Chrome trains. And then we’ll hear about the state of the racing business. Is horse racing still the draw it once was?
